To photoshop that cove it is very easy in photoshop.....Select the cove using the pen tool, drop the selection as a mask over the car,  then make a color fill layer, adj opacity as you feel. By saving the selection as a mask, you can put any color into the cove

62 corvette Lee ,, i want to do it white with red coves , but i have searched and i cant find a single 62 corvette that way , i see red with white coves but not white and red and i want to do as much deatil as i can on it , ahh i just did some reading , in 62 colored coves was not offered as an option !!

That's why most dealers had paint shops or contracts with local body shops. Although a factory-finished car would have been a solid color, you can be pretty sure that at least one or two ended up getting contrasting coves once delivered.

Greg was probly figuring you were a whiz with computers, now that we know your level of computer savvy, we can adjust our suggestions accordingly.  :)

 

it should be noted that I'm sure Greg's procedure to do this in photoshop will most likely achieve the desired results, I used a different program which costs a lot less and has similar capabilities as photoshop.
