This for San Andreas?

If so then you also need to

look in the generic vehicle txd,

that is where mostly all the texture

are for the car's.

Cause the mod's have them in there own dff's, and they can place the texture's

of their car's in the txd of the same vehicle.

Only way is to open the dff in a modeling program.

I use Zmodeler2, other's use 3dmax, there are more, but mostly

them mostly.

Or you can just get a dff viewer, dont now if there is one for

San Andreas dff's, but i bet there is one out there.

You should be able to extract the dff and it's txd.

Place them both in a folder, then extract the texture's

from the txd into the same folder.

load the dff in the dff viewer and see the texture's.

I think that's how the viewer works.

First off is you zmodeler2 registered?

If so then do as i posted before, extract both

the dff and txd to one folder.

Use txdworkshop, to extract the textures form the

txd, into the same folder.

Now open zmod and import the dff of the car you

want to retexture, and it should load with the textures.

One last thing if some area's of the model look white, then

you are missing some texture's, if so extract the textures form

the generic vehicle txd into that same folder that has the dff,

you are trying to retexture.

Hope this helps.
