Open the enclosed text file 'mods' and select the type below the line "carmods .dat", right click your mouse and select 'Copy', next select the type after the vehicle name that you've replaced in the 'carmods .dat' file from the 'data' folder up to the next vehicle name, right click and select 'Delete', right click again and select 'Paste', the line that you've copied from the enclosed text file 'mods' will replace the line that you've deleted in the 'carmods .dat' file from the 'data' folder. Repeat this step with the type below the "handling .cfg" line in the enclosed text file 'mods' and the name of the vehicle that you have replaced in the 'handling .cfg' file from the 'data' folder, place the copied carmods .dat and handling .cfg files back into the 'data' folder.
