    But how do you select the bits you're after? i.e the bodywork?

    The best way to select a car would be to use the pen tool to draw a quick outline then refine it with the path tools. Not the easiest of methods but will give the best results. You'll find the pen (p) and path tools (a) next to the text tool, about half way down the tools palette. Once you've got the path around the bodywork convert to a selection and then use the Hue/saturation tools.

    In photoshop, open your image and go to the image menu, then adjustments, then hue/saturation. A box now appears, at the top of the box where it says edit - master, change the master to reds - if red is the colour of your car. Then just slide the sliders back and forth at the bottom to adjust all the red colours in the photo. can be done with blues, greens etc. hope this helps and give you an idea of how to change your cars colour...

    tick the "colorize button" on the bottom right of the hue/saturation (ctrl+u) box, then move the sliders

    for chrome - works best on a black car, get the selection of the paint, fill it with white on the layer above and change the blending option to overlay
