You can just tell me how, or where you learned it from. I am trying to figure out photoshop, its just that, I never could quite grasp it just by playing with it [How I learn everything else]. It is not necessary that you do it for me, because then, I haven't learned anything, except the colour theme for my bonne..

basic quick terms...

select the area, any way you know how, then layer, new adjustment later, then color balance, move the sliders to the color you want. do it several times if you want the color darker. i just learned this from playing...so there prolly a better way

For a second there, I thought I slept walked over to my car, and spray painted my valve covers red!! . I guess that'* what happens when you can't trust yourself. That certainly is sufficant, thanks harofreak. I will know the colour theme in no time!

I am 90% sure. I would go black, only if the interior pieces I was thinking of painting, weren't black already . However, I do know, I will not be doing any of this customizing stuff, before spring of next year. But what I can tell you, is the summer of '06, Bfest, I am there! and I will surely be showing off my handy work.. or not so handy work
