Taking photoshop requests

I've been getting a little rusty with my photo-manipulation skills in photoshop, so I'd like to start doing more. If anyone wants to see how a mod looks on their focus i'd be glad to photoshop it up for you.

I'll need:
1) a pic of your car or an identical model. I'm not souring google images for you (higher resolution is better, but don't go crazy. 1024x768 minimum!).
2) a detailed description of what you want done
3) beer (i'll supply my own if i have to ).

Who's first?

I will go first I suppose, since I am curious. Here is my car.



This is what I am looking for except matte black. (The Euro Stripe) Can you make the "whiskers" matte black too?



Thanks! I'm excited

Ok, here's my car -
I would like to see it with these wheels-
I would also like to see the beltline in a matching red.

Or you can take this and add some red racing stripes in a manner that is similar or exactly like Sonic_Hedgehog's car-

I wait patiently for your art.

Picture of my car:


I would like to see my car modded to look like a Unicorn fighting Stephen Hawking while Scarlett Johansson watches approvingly. Don't fail me

Could you try black or gold painted wheels (just the covers, steelies remain black underneath) (darkish gold) (glossy black)

Thanks :)

Here you go, sir:



Looks pretty neat, imo, but if I were you i'd just put the stripe on the hood. The focus' bumper is busy enough as it is and the stripe going the whole way down is kind of odd. I didnt do the roof because I didnt notice it until now, lol. You get the idea anyway.

I don't like the trend of blacking out the grill. The chrome accents on the grill match nicely with the fog light bezels. Thats my opinion at least...

I'll work on everyone's in the order they are posted, so if it gets backed up be patient.

Looks good. I may have to do this to my car. I think if the stripe ended below the "whiskers" and went all the way to the back bumper, it would look nice. Then slap some Ti headlights on it and it will be good to go. I appreciate it!

I kind of really like it, but it wouldnt look near as good on Candy Red as it does on Race Red, so i'll have to find something else to do to mine...

What are Ti lights going for these days?

I like it. In my opinion, it gives it more of a Euro flare. Used Ti headlights can be under $100 each side, but may have some kind of defect. New ones here.

I think I am going to hold off for some better deals on some lightly used ones or OEM ones.
