Default Gearshift photoshop request

I wanna wrap the center part of the gear shift in my 16 es to match my wood. I have the birds eye maple. Can one of you guys photoshop the middle part of the gearshift, that is currently satin gray to match my wood?

I've never really attempted to do an overlay of a pattern before. This is the best I could do with it.

I think the OEM will look 10x better than the vinyl (I know, personal opinion that you didn't ask for )

You're adding another color and texture to the interior by just doing that one piece and IMO car interiors with too many different shades and textures don't look all that great.

Maybe there's a reason you didn't post like a scratch on lever, just throwing that out for your consideration.

It has a couple of nicks. That's why. I couldn't find a match to the wood. And the aluminum inspired me cause the new gs has a aluminum center rather then my satin plastic.

I don't think vinyl is going to give you the same look as aluminum regardless if that's what you are going for.

How much is a replacement **** from the new GS? That'd probably be the only way to really get what you want. Maybe also search salvage yard site to see if any have been wrecked yet.

This is the vinyl I purchased. Yea ultimately I would want that but my es is the parchment with brown combo. So my shift **** is brown and the gs one is black.

Here it is in brushed aluminum. This one was a bit more time consuming.



It actually doesn't look that bad.

Well my vinyl came in. I wrapped my gear shift, first time working with wrap. I am pleased to say it came out amazing I got the result I wanted which was to mimic the gs gear shift center trim. IMHO looks great feel free to share your thoughts.
