I would be using masks to draw/paint that section in

Same here, I'd select the individual areas, paint them to match, add the correct kind of noise, and clone/patch any additional spots.

I would've used a stationary picture and just edited that piece in. Less work :D

Everybody that doesn't rig thinks they can do that, but in reality, it doesn't work 98% of the time. I've seen guys that are fantastic with the transform/warp tools that can pull it off, but it's just as hard as repainting it.

I suggest not to bro, I've done one with clear vinyl, and it got some vampire-bite like protrusion, obviously got sucked by the cups' edges. 3D Vinyl are not smooth, so I think it'll be not good for suction too.

BTW, just finish touching up my shot:

you couldn't quote it?

There's lots more good info in there for those who have the initiative to look for it, so I prefer to just provide a link.

I am looking to shoot in brad daylight, any recommendation on what density for the ND filter? 77mm. I have a Grade 0.9 (3-stops) Filter and that is not cutting it, even with my F/ all the way closed.

Are you using it with a CP as well? That usually does it. Some, that don't use a CP (weird, I know), use the 1.6, which is 6-stops I believe.

Damn -.- Clear vinyl for protection? Our car is almost completely in clear vinyl, except roof which is in 3D carbon vinyl :D Sh#t, the colour of this car is so beautiful (Clio RS in Alien Green).:mad:
