I'm using Maya 5.0 PLE and I've pretty much finished my vehicle....but how do I texture? Can someone give me an explination on how to texture/skin a vehicle? I would be using the VTMs but those only explain how to create people, not vehicles.

You should be able to apply the skinning part of the player character VTMs to vehicles, just takes a bit of working it out. I assume the VTMs show you how to unwrap the player model and then paint onto that, it should be the same basic process with a vehicle. In fact it will probably be easier as vehicles aren't organic like players and don't have so many curves etc., which makes skinning convincingly a lot easier.
