Talking Newbie's white 986 needs PHOTOSHOP help

I just got my first Porsche this past weekend and can't wait to personalize it to possibly match my white MDX with dark gunmetal wheels. Can someone please Photoshop the following area of the Boxster to dark gunmetal color on the first 2 pictures? If it looks good then I'll eventually use a combination of Plasti-Dip, 3M Di-Noc and/or real CF to achieve the look. THANKS!

1) A-pillar & across the windshield
2) side vent
3) side mirrors
4) wheels

5) clear out the amber side marker





Here is a shot of my MDX

Welcome and that is a nice lookin ride! Personally I wouldn't touch it, I dig those white wheels. If you do them black leave the outer section by the wheel white that would be cool.

Good find!

Nice! I like it and can you please Photoshop the first picture too, just wanna see it at different angle. That Stormtrooper reminds me of my pre MDX ride, the "Darth Vader Wagon"

my 2 cents, I like the black wheels, side marker, vent, and mirrors all black. leave the windshield frame as is..... other wise your top will be 3 shades of black. the soft top, the sun faded plastic, and then the new paint you put on the frame

ALSO, note how Penland's grilles are black. that is a must imho

Thx for the inputs, I haven't finalized on which route yet but as of today this is how I would do it;

1) Real carbon fiber side mirror covers OR wrap with 3M Di-Noc
2) 3M Di-Noc on the entire windshield frame
3) Plasti-Dip wheels black with silver metalizer

Whatever I do will be reversible so if I don't like it I can just take/peel it off
