Well, I'm happy I was able to get Irridux's fine 68 carset to work on my computer. So here is some
material to check out from the 1968 Grand Prix Season.

Dave, this prompted me to download the '68 carset and I've been trying all day to get it working to no avail.  Any Tips?  Can you run it straight from Gem+2 or are you using GPL CarSetChanger?
Any guidance would be very much appreciated.
Thanks
Mike

Hi Mike. My method is not the way it was intended to be but it worked out for me.

After d-load Irridux carset ,Open your Main GPL Folder. Now open the cars folder,  move the cars67 folder out of the cars folder or simply rename it cars67-2 .This will take it out of the program. When you want to go back to the 67 cars you will rename it  back to the proper cars67. Now rename cars68 to cars67.Do the same with the drvc or driver file that
goes in your Main GPL folder by renaming the 67 drvc or driver 67-2. Rename the 68 to 67 drvc or driver, Then I copied my Layout folder for going back to the 67 cars later.
Next add
in the 68 layout files to the original for 68 Menu and driver photos etc.Then run gplc67 in the Main GPL folder to begin GPL. When you want to return back to the 67 cars rename your  files back to 68 and change your true 67 files to their original 67config. You are basically renaming the true 67 folders/drvc for storage and naming  the 68 to 67. I can't/ don't use GEM so this is what I had to do. I hope this helps/works Good Luck !
