Default Photoshop request. Colour change.

I am thinking of changing the gold stripe around my car to red to match the calipers. Ide like to see what it would look like but i cant get a good idea using MS paint. Could someone with photoshop help me out? Also Ide like opinions on if I should go through with this or any other colours that would look good. I want to tint my front and rear amblems red to match. Does anyone know how I would try to do that? I was thinking of gluing a clear red film to them.

That didnt look as good as I had envisioned. Good photoshop though. Those clears look really good too. What other colours do you think would look good? Silver? stripe delete?

If it were my car I'd do the red stripe. It looks nice with the red calipers. Cleans it up nice.
