Re: colour change.

hehe. okay, so half way through cropping i got tired. this is REALLY ROUGH but at least it gives you an idea.

sorry the masking is so bad, white is one of the hardest colours (shades) to photoshop and i get lazy

Re: colour change.

so what do you guys think?? is it worth doing or is it just old and tacky? the only problem i have (apart from no money) is the front end on my van is almost brand new....like it rollled out of the factory so it would be a waste to unbolt the best bit of the car. but it is different!

Re: colour change.

I think if you just go over the red with white you'd get a pinky white, it would show up in bright light. If you do respray it, go for something modern like a blood orange or something as you've already got a red base colour. That's presuming you are not going back to bare metal, which then wouldn't matter as much. Anyone care to attempt a PS respray in blood orange?

sorry i should have been a bit more clear as to what i have and dont have. i have a white xf pano and found this pic of the red one with the fairlane front on Ebay (thanks to the owner probably not knowing i stole his pics!!) what i wanted to see was what my white van would look like with the front end. if i do this there wont be any respraying but a simple swap (hopefully) of panels as i would get a white LTD from the auctions that has been hit in the arse or something as i dont need the back of it. this would also give me all the bits i would need to change the dash as well.....if i could ever be bothered.
