vehicle texturing

there are plenty free car modelling tuts on the web and thanks to those that
put in the time and effort to write them,but most if not all never go on to teach you how to texture the nice car youve just modeld
i think the lessons learned from texturing a realistic looking car would be
invaluable to a noob like me,anyone know any sites,links to help me out

Look into material nodes, that is the way to go for car texturing.

Here’s the best tutorial I’ve ever found for texturing. It’s not Blender-specific, but with GIMP it works just fine, and is absolutely excellent!
