    Looks nice minus the black rims. How do you light up the headlights? What software do you use?

    Re: Chevy Tahoe

    Thanks... the forum I posted it on for the challenge doesn't like to keep the stock wheel look...if you do, you won't get any votes....

    The headlights are easy to do in PhotoShop CS2.... first, I zoom in very far on the headlights, then I use a small brush and paint the reflective areas very white. Then I use the blending options menu and select "outer glow"...from there, I have to choose the color of the glow, for this one I went with blue for a HID look...

    There are alot of things you can add like lens flares and whatnot but, I prefer a clean looking chop.

    The paint on this one is what I am most proud of. It went from a dull beige to a brilliant gold with only 4 layers.... some red, some yellow...all different layer types and opacities.

    Thanks for the comment and the question.
