Not a problem. If you are just starting out I would recommend the following points to work on:
  • Refresh on what Bullet said earlier about always finishing your model before playing around with textures, skipping out steps is the downfall of a lot of people.
  • Research the various techniques for builing cars, my personal favorite is, mapping out Nurbs curves, lofting the panels then converting them to a low poly mesh. This way you have a quality edge flow but your panels are different pieces of geometry (as car panels are in reality).
  • after you are happy with your model, prepare your UV's, extremely important if you intent on adding additional specific detail such as rust, stickers, and mud etc

I may well start from scratch over the next week and put a tutorial together for a shader network dealing with car panel rust, its something I've not really looked into before. If you haven't solved your issue by then i'll post it here for you.

It's not your map or shader. The probllem is your UV layout (it's messy, a lot of overlapping) and your shader has texture connections, unsmoothed it renders fine, soon as I hit 3 and render, it gets to about 95% done and crashes. I can see how the problem didn't come up with Maya software renderer because it doesn't take adavantage of the smooth preview.

The problem went away when I :

1. I slapped an automatic mapping on it.

or

2. Broke all texture connections on the shader.

edit: forgot the "or" just so you know you don't have to do both

Yes at some point you will need to redo your UV layout, that seems to be the source of the problem.

To delete the history select the model and go to Edit -> Delete by Type -> History.

This clears the history and should speed Maya up.
Thank you, I've been wondering why that is....

a little random but thanks anyways!
