Can anyone do some photoshop for me?

Anyone on here happen to have some decent photoshop skills?

I am thinking about getting the 919 tank & tail painted and wanted to test out some colors and ideas.

Thanks,
Ian

Hehe .... maybe.

The 9'er needs a respray and I can redo the current white paint free and easy .... but it got me thinking about spending some $$$ and trying something new and fresh.

Maybe I should have a "poll" to keep it white or respray it a different color.

You made your XRL match your 9er now you want to change the 9er, what kind of message are you sending to your XRL? It can't even be a "red" headed step child anymore cause you made it all white, stop the madness

I can do it. Have done a few mockups for members.

I may not have a lot to say but it doesn't mean I don't listen.

If you have a white 919 already it will be pretty easy.

First off big thanks goes out to VeloDesign who used his skills to mock this up for me. I appreciate the help and owe you a favor my man!

Now the part I has been waiting for ..... my 9'er in Porsche Anthracite Brown.




I love this color .... its a mild metallic that shifts from grey/brown/bronze depending on lighting. I saw it on a MK2 V-dub at a car show last summer and couldn't stop drooling over it. The best part for me is the retro CB theme. I am very happy with the mock up results!

This will be happening sometime in the future. Just need to find some time to run some tests on overcoating the current paint products on the bike .... if there is an issue I will have to take it all the way back down to to OEM and start from scratch.

There's a few vehicles this color and was thinking of doing mine a version of it. I like it! I would do the front fender and the hugger as well.

Well I don't dislike it, I guess it would have to grow on me.
I thought about re painting mine this color, Ford calls it Gingerale

It must be a generation thing... I thought those browns were popular in the '80s. I'm a huge fan of the burnt orange colors that were popular in the '90s.

edit: seems like the orange made somewhat of a comeback based on a Google search.

I love the burnt orange color. So far I think the xterra has the best modern burnt orange color. Although the 2008 919 burnt orange looks pretty good!

Does a burnt orange bike smell like smoke?

@velodesign, now do the same thing with the burnt orange color so HeliMech can see what he is missing
