Anybody good with Photoshop

I have the white GT convertible with the blacktop. I'm thinking about painting the a pillars around the windshield black to the top.

Plus. Would it look good?

Looking for input.

Re: Anybody good with Photoshop

you can get vinyl stickers to cover that area just to test it out before you go and actually have it painted.

Going to be hard to dip the top of my mustang in that stuff!

But seriously, I'm liking the vinyl idea.

Re: Anybody good with Photoshop

not my cup of tea... to many colors IMO
red
white
chrome
black

why not just get a white top? try to keep to the colors you already have?

(and oh no there is another difference we have discovered lol)

The Whitetop is not my cup of tea. The black was already there in the top so I thought was a nice tie in.

The only chrome now is the five Point oh I'm thinking about having those painted red when the stripes are painted

Good point I agree, can't really see much of the detail on my phone. I personally hate (except for black) chrome on cars unless accented right by silver touches or classic cars.

So go get those emblems and such painted!

But our twinning has yet to be dismantled! Actually the only difference so far is your scared of spiders/needles and I'm not
HA!

Looks great . My Photoshop left with my Mac pro when we got laid off. Think I have an older version somewhere.

My bad, i looked too fast at the wheels.

My personal thoughts and you may take this as overkill... but my inner artist is coming out and I think you should find some wheels like this that way the black of the tires, the white of the wheel, and the red for the stripes. this IMO will look amaaaazing!
