    I'm designing a paint scheme for an iRacing driver. I have the paint template. I do not have an iRacing account. Is there a viewer anywhere I can use to make sure all of my alignments are correct?

    Unfortunately not, you would have to have the game to view the paints.

    Yup. Must have an account.

    If you have one, you also have to have the content to even view it. Equates to about 10-15 USD per piece, unless you buy in bulk and get the volume discounts (which increase incrementally as you buy more at once at various thresholds, i.e. 3-6-12 pieces get you something like 10%-15%-25% off respectively, later a content-owned discount comes into play which nets you some additional percentages off each purchase).

    Easiest way to paint is to hit the track, freeze the replay of a lap, look at your paint, alt-tab back to your paint program, make adjustments, re-save, update the file, go back to the game, refresh (CTRL-R), and look at it again. Rinse & repeat as necessary.

    A real pain in the ass. People have been clamoring for a stand alone model viewer for this reason for years.
