i figured a neutral color would be easier, but maybe Gun metallic is a little dark?

Because the PG/ (Grays) are what cameras are calibrated too, and also that they blend in (earthly tones) it's hard to do it, unless you isolated your subject on to a white backdrop or extreme chroma color, but non the less ill show you!

Same reason they use green (or blue) screens - high contrast between background and subject to make it easier for the computer to separate the two (and sometimes the person too )

CHANGING COLOR

So this is a really easy process to do, but works BEST on CHROMA colors (bright reds, blues, yellows, greens' because the color of a car if it's PG or white, there is white and those colors all around so in order to do that you NEED TO isolate your colors pull it places where there is no other color like that.

If you have the colors mentioned above your lucky. This users' car was posted above so I'm using it for this demonstration.

STEP ONE 1: Duplicate layer (CMD + J) (CTRL+J) on chose the duplicated layer, and add a layer mask! Make sure that the "Car" thumbnail, not your layer mask or "White" thumbnail is selected otherwise nothing will happen!



Step 2: With the Polygonal Lasso tool you are going to make a crappy selection isolating the color you want to change! You can be more presice to make the job in the end easier but for demonstration I didn't, so when you connect the end of the lasso tool, you'll get marching ants like so: (You can see the tool selected in the tool box)



Step 3: (THE FUN!) With the marching ants you want to go up to Image > Adjustments > Replace color and you'll get this dialog box:




Step 4: With this you will see three eye drop tools select the one with the +, begin clicking the image where the red is, because this is where we want to replace the red. You will notice the black box turns white show casing where the red is represented. You want to get it so only the color is showing white in the dialog box, like represented.



Step 5: Change the HUE to your preferred color, and adjust the saturation depending on how bright or dull you want it! I like green! Press okay when done!




Step 6: You will notice some of the headlight and tailight turned green, so on the "White" thumbnail, next to the green car (Top layer), you want to paint with a BLACK brush 80% flow over those until they are gone and TA-DA This it to show you before & after.
