Medkit skin Epic Fail

Everytime I try to install ANY medkit skins it all turns to poo. The skin itself works fine but then the world is way glitchy, full of flickering lines of pink and balck squares. and wireframes Here is an image http://img194.imageshack.us/img194/3361/wtffbk.jpg God knows why this happens, I don't touch any other lines in the pak01_dir file expect those that directly effect the medkit. So why the whole enviroment plagued with this glichy annoying Shite? I have installed countless weapon and player skins so what is the problem here?!! Any Ideas?

    I suppose it's because the skinner forgot something in the world model.
    It is for sure a mess. If you find the model pack, contact the person who submitted it.

    This happens on ALL the medkit skins I install. And not once in all the pages of comments for them have I noticed this mentioned.

    Then it looks like you have some issue with them. delete your medkit model folder, and any custom ones you have. Maybe there was a file with different boundaries than the model supports.
    If you can get the default models back, it should work.

    Are you editing the custom downloads? Try getting one, get it working and edit that one.

    I have Deleted an reinstall many times. I can easly revert back to the default skins but I want to be able to use custom Medkit skins, not only for ingame use but for my own skinning projects.

    I am currently in the process of Skinning my own version of the medkit. Things would be made easier if I could used custom medkit skins properly.

    After hours of trial and error I believe this is a bumpmap issue. If only I knew anything about bump mapping.

    Can someone please tell me if they have a file called "Flat_normal" in the following directory:

    SteamApps\common\left 4 dead\left4dead\materials\effects\

    Thanks
