anyone good with photoshop?

my car have m performance body kit and my car is also white, i am looking at the m performance diffuser and i don't like it all black like most people have it here

so my thought is to paint it the diffuser line to
1. body colored white
2. black
3. red

please see attached and excuse my poor paintshop skills, lol, so i hope it shows what i want

can someone help me photoshop it properly so i can decide whether to have it white, black, or red?

thank you

A carbon fiber diffuser would look great on a white car.

nah, carbon fiber that means it's all black, if i paint it, it is a waste of the carbon fiber, besides, too expensive for exterior in a sense that it would get all banged up from rock and chips, and insurance will not cover carbon fiber accessories if something happens to it

Just to check if we are talking about the same thing.
You are planning on painting just the flat part of that line?

Without going into too much detail, hopefully this will give you
an idea. Hope it helps.

thanks, Neverlast , this looks great, now i am confused, lol.

which one do you think looks the best? black, red, or body colored (white)?

i think black makes it sporty, it has similar effect to canards if it paints it black

In my opinion black or white, but bear in mind I like to keep things understated,
nothing wrong in expressing flamboyancy if you like it. White defines its line just by
shadows and highlights which is great in my book, and black does give it a bit of focus.

I don't usually agree with this kind of thing, but still, you are right. I like it when white draws the depths and shadows on its own, then there's no excess, just what's needed.

Looks good with the smoked lights. I think the white works very well and highlights the subtle body lines. Red would have spoiled the look and black just disappears as shown by the other car. White is the right choice.
