any photoshop wizz kids?

hey i wondered if anyone was able to use this software and pop a carbon fibre bonnet on my car? ive been looking at the ones from knight racer in the trader section.

i cant belive how heavy the bonnet is on the GTT there is no need, do you think changing this to carbon will improve performance or is it merely for easthetics? im thinking this is quarter of the wieght of standard i guess hardly a noticable improvement but the thing weights 30 kilos or more surely? be nice to get rid of the load

either way i hope a photoshopper could help me out.

more pics found here https://www.skylineowners.com/forum/s...light=skylines

cheers all

stevo

Black on white always works. If you don't like it black, paint it. The weight saving is quite dramatic, down to 5-8 kilos. You will need aerocatches though as the bonnet will fly up otherwise.

Mine is white as you can see and I love it




You can see the aerocatches here, good fun fitting them. Would get them done professionally if you're not as brave!
