Photoshop help-Targa bar to stainless

Just need a favor from someone with photo-shop experience.

I am trying to see how my Targa would look with the Targa bar stripped to Stainless and the Fuch paddles polished out.

Thanks!

Of course, if difficult to recreate the real stainless look in Photoshop...but IŽll leave it in black..lots of black trim in your car.

Thanks

I think the black looks fine.

I actually like the bar in the non-factory gloss.

Not sure the bar is stainless steel on later cars....better check before stripping it. Most (not all) stainless is non-magnetic, so you can easily verify before removing any paint.
FWIW, I'd vote for keeping it black to match the rest of the trim and I've never been a fan of polished Fuchs on cars with black trim.

I found one that looks close to my color with a stainless bar.
