Make sure that it is placed in the CarCommon folder,
if you don't have one, just create one :thumbsup:

Did it come with a Model.Pack.GBX inside the zip?

If you are creating a custom skin for a custom model you need to make a copy of the entire custom model zip folder (with the 3D model in it) and just replace the SkinDiffuse.dds with your own. It has been some time since I've done this but I think it still works that way.
