Having created a variety of skins for Ohaha's Volvo FH 2013 (for different profiles) I've found that when adding "nguard_s" (rear bumper & lights) to a new truck, the options Stock Painted, Custom Ohaha, Custom Multi Light & Custom Low Plus all have an icky bright green part around the rear lights. For example:

This looks horrible. It only does it with the skins I've created. Any ideas?

So here it is ..
Simple but ... mine!

Hey, I have some issues trying to create a skin with ETS2STUDIO. I tried creating .dds skin template, uploading it to ETS2STUDIO, but when I press Export Mod, software crashes. I tried creating it with .png skin template and it does export, but skin doesn't show up in game. What's the problem?

yesterday I tried to make a FedEx skin for Volvo. The skin itself is white with logos on doors.
Problem is that in-game truck is black. I figure that the problem is the mask.
How can I turn it off?

Edit: My skin is covered by base color. Can you point me where is the problem?
