Hi,
I found a similar request here on changing a trucks color from white to black.
Looks as though it is tougher than it looks to keep the final image realistic, however you might get some ideas anyway...

RE: Vehicle Color
here's a good user submitted rotate-colors example:

If you can't get it to work right, keep trying or post up your try and a half size sample of the photo & we could try with it.

RE: Vehicle Color
Thanks all for the replies. I had viewed the train thread prior to posting. i guess a little more explanation.....I have a picture of a Jeep that is red with black fenders. I also have a pic of a camo pattern that I would like to overlay/replace the red on the jeep with. Basically a preview of what it would look like repainted with the camo pattern.

Thanks again
