Default Anyone a photoshop guru....or at least decent with it?

I thought I would be able to do it since I was quite good a few years ago...but I quickly found out that its not like riding a bike, everything I do looks like a 3 year old did it lol. Anyways, I'm trying to get a decent rendering of what my car will look like with the CF HT, N2 flares, Spinwerk wheels, and possibly a two tone look....If its not too much trouble, I wouldn't mind having a few variations on the color combo...maybe one with the existing stripe, one all white except the HT/windshield surround(Like the first picture), and one CF two tone...Here are some pictures to work off of, but if you need more just let me know. Thanks for the help guys, and really it doesn't have to be perfect, I just have a hard time visualizing things, so if you are even decent with photoshop or another program PLEASE feel free to give it a shot!

I'm thinking it may be easier to modify this image since this car already has the flares on it, since its white, and has a hardtop. (Just needs the stock spoiler, wheels, my front end, and color)

3m Carbon for two tone:





Two Tone Look:
I marked my car up with electrical tape to kind of outline where I was thinking the vinyl wrap would go if I went the two tone route....I figured my bumper scoop would be the start the two tone in the front (Below that the rest of the bumper would be white) and the trunk lid would end it....the rear finishing panel and rear bumper would be white...

Holy **** dude! Is that all you know how to say "rice"? Every thread I open you post "rice". Everyone mods their car the way they want, if anything everyone cars in here are rice since it's an import. You need to get off your high horse and relax.
Btw your bumper and wheels scream "rice" and you gay as double hoop gaybar so I wouldn't talk to much.
Go ahead say that my car is "rice" too

Wow. lol at taking the internet seriously.

Anyway, not defending his comment, but you might want to get your facts right. I'm pretty sure SSRs are far from rice. And that's not a style bar, it's a Boss Frog roll bar. Just setting you straight on your call out.

Carry on.
---------------------------
For the OP, I tried photoshopping for you, but it's like you said. I haven't messed with PS in so long I might as well have been doing it in Paint.

The stock bumper or the authentic GV? The SSRs are rice? I have a double-hoop rollbar too, is it automatically rice?

Probably no volunteers because it's a lot of work.

I'll do it when I get home. Only because I got an awesome gauge panel from you.

Well, I failed on the two tone, so I guess someone else can pick up where I left off. Doing the two tone is difficult because it ends up being a black blotch on the hood with no shading. Unless you are a pro which I am not. So far:

The second one is my favorite, lol! Good job removing the spoiler...can't even tell it was there. The wheels look pretty good too!

here is a very primitive render on how the hood would look with black. I'll try to do some carbon.
