You can find the skins in this directory, C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 4 - Modern Warfare\main PART 2
Convert the IWI file to dds, using the IWI_x_DDS

Now edit it to your desires, I made the AK silver. PART 4 Save it, if you are editing a weapon COL file, I.E. weapon_ak_c or weapon_m4_col etc., save it as a D.X.T.1 PART 5 Once you have saved it, go to your DDStoIWI-cod4 and place you Skin DDS in their. PART 6 Go to your CoD4 main directory (shown at the top of the tut) and rename IW_00 - IW_06 to these names
NAMES FOR IW00 - 06

After that, Place your modded skin into the images folder in your IWD file.
