    Hello, I recently uploaded a car I made in BeamNG.Drive using vehicle customization I used a few mods to make it what it is. I wanted to upload this car to the BeamNG website or repository so people could also use the car and have fun with it. LINK: https://www.beamng.com/resources/sunburst-race-car.11396/
    I have been having trouble with the resource file I have uploaded. Apparently the resource I loaded won't work in the repository because I need a .json file because what I uploaded was just the .pc file. I tried making a new resource file using other mods as a template for mine and I came up with this file (below). I tried putting the .zip file in the mods folder to see if it works. The car does show up in mods but does not show up in vehicles. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong and I need some help. Feel free to edit this file and fix it but be sure to explain what you fixed so I could learn and do it in the future. THANKS!!

    two main issues:
    1. the file isn't packed correctly
    2. you just have to add an info.json file

    i've fixed these isseues, so here's the file

    Thank you so much but how would you add a thumbnail for it?
