It's not like you get to look at it a lot while racing either, all you see is part of the bonnet maybe.
I've made quite a few skins myself, and you know how many I have used? Maybe 1 or 2. Hell, I don't even have most of them in my lfs skins folder. I like making skins, designing, working with photoshop etc. If he is into graphics, design, wants to learn and practice making skins, then why not.
Again I've had some spare hours today and made this McLaren ('96 version) RAC Ofcourse it's not an exact replica but I just used an '96 picture as reverence (with barcode instead of the Marlboro name). I used this website to make the barcode, as Marlboro is 8 letters I filled in 8 everywhere and the barcode on the skin was the result. (as there already is an Rothmans and Camel RAC).
