Who is good at Photoshop

I know one of you can do this...will you show me what my seats would look like with the center section if the seat and backrest in silver or light gray?

Sorta like this?... #Porsche #Boxster #bucketseats #wrapped in 2-tone Black with Lt. Grey #perforatedleather inserts and - leatherseatsprime

If you do that, I think it'll look good to make the door airbag grey too.

I think it would look great!
Not shiny, like in Bran's rendition, but a bright flat silver.
