Automobile retouching

Hey guys,

Been looking at a lot of car images recently, and was wondering if anyone had any links to resources, tutorials or books where they talk about professional car retouching?

What I'm mainly interested in is stuff like

http://www.geckoimaging.com/portfoli...ing/51/?page=1
http://www.geckoimaging.com/portfoli...ing/45/?page=1


Altering the colours, giving it that very modern, metallic shine and creating those new highlights.

Any information is welcome

Cheers!

Re: Automobile retouching

Nice links, cheers. Spent a bit of time reading through them, some decent stuff there, especially on changing the car colour which is pretty simple now I realise.

I'm mainly just wondering how he makes the cars body just pop, like in that second picture I linked to. The colours are very deep, is that just dodging, burning and gradients? And he creates new reflections/highlights on the bodywork, I was wondering how to recreate that.
