    Hello, Today I will tell/show you how to download a skin that can be implemented into Team Fortress 2
    First of all, You will need to go to a site to find a skin/sound.

    Site
    I use http://tf2.gamebanana.com/

    What skin I will be using & Download
    Next, we will need to find a skin. If you click on "New Skins" it will show you the newest skins that have been submitted (this is the same with sounds)
    Here's one I found earlier that we will use Download on Skin.png
    To download, Click on the download button. A short advert will play and a download will start

    Contents of folder
    Once this download ends you should have a folder that looks abit like this Contents.png

    Location
    So... Where do we put the contents. We need to place the contents of the folder into the custom TF2 folder that can be found in the following picture (outlined in red) Where it should be.png as long as you place all the content into there, you should be good.


    Testing and result
    Time to find out if you have installed it correctly
    Load up TF2 and equip the item you have installed the skin for
    for the one I have shown, your solmen vow should now look like this
    result 1.jpg result 2.jpg result 3.jpg result 4.jpg



    And that should be you! If you installed a sound for a cirtain action, you would obviously need to do the action,
    If you have any questions, Feel free to ask me as a comment and I'll do my best to help you out
    Enjoy and I quote from Gaben vow its self
    "Do Not Delay"
