Looking for some help to photoshop a picture of a 53 Eldorado to see what a color combo would look like. The colors I am looking for are black body with a blue and white interior and a norman gray body with a red interior.  Thanks.

I can give it a try for you over the next couple days. I planned to finish some work on my Eldorado but the weather isn't cooperating, I don't want to waste any Hirsch engine enamel applying it in the cold and wet. :-)

Do you have digital photos you want used? E-mail them to me, the higher the resolution the better. We can get a pretty good idea of how it'll look but the color match may not be perfect.

Chris, thanks for the help. Do I need to find some photos or can we just google a nice photo and use that? Thanks.

We could plagiarize something from the CLC photo gallery or on-line. A full side shot is best, something overhead of the interior. I'm not at my computer right now, find something you like and I'll search later also.

Here's one from the gallery.

Great! I'll mess with it over the next couple evenings. The weather has cleared so I'll be putting my '66 back together during the day (doing an upper-end rebuild).

Look again at the photo I posted from the gallery, what color is the car behind the black Eldorado and behind the guy in the yellow shirt? Is that the gray color you're considering? That would be handy, I could just sample that car color to convert the black car. If you find an interior shot you'd like to see send it my way.

Chris, the color chip for noman gray shows it as dark charcoal gray with mettalic. I did find some nice pics on google maybe I will try to send you one. Thanks again.
