Photoshopping Question

How do I change the color of the car in the picture? I saw some guy turn a sonic blue SVT into an Infra Red SVT, I just started messing around with the program, so I don't know much about it. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

If there's a website tutorial thing I can go to, then just give me the link.

Thanks

One way I found is to select the entire region you are going to change, and then select a color close to what you want, change your paintbrush options from Normal to either Color or Hue, and paint. If you are close, then you can adjust the brightness and contrast, or the color balance to fine tune it.

But I have troubles going to black or white, or from black or white.

^^ sort of similar to what he was saying... select the area you want to change, and then select the hue/saturation adjustment option from the menu.

Use the magic wand tool to select the area you want and then use the hue/saturation

I'd use the lasso tool instead of the magic wand. its more precise.

Use both, it's faster. Select whatever you want with the magic wand and then switch to the lasso tool to add or remove parts of the selection. To add, hold down SHIFT while you select stuff, and to subtract, hold down ALT.
