1. Using your operating system's file manager, browse into either "livery for xp10" (for an X-Plane 10 installation) or "livery for xp11" (for an X-Plane 11 installation).
2. Browse into the subfolder named "Aircraft".
3. Browse into the subfolder named "VSL DC-3 C-47 Flying Lab".
4. Browse into the subfolder named "liveries".
5. Move the subfolders found _within_ this package's "liveries" into your installed VSL DC-3's "liveries" folder. You should not be challenged to overwrite any existing files ...if you are, cancel the operation and review the previous steps.
