G'day everybody,

I have made a complete tutorial set on YouTube of my personal process of modifying my own GTA IV car. This tutorial covers how to convert your 3D car model and make it work in the game. See the headings below to learn about the steps in the process:

Enjoy! Let me know what you think.

Hi Eashan,

Yes that is right. All you need to do is merge the file, pick the wheel parts you want to merge, including parent dummy.
Then you would just need to move in place. Apply material.

Check tut 5 for info on how to merge or import parts from another file.
