Hi guys! Is there a good tutorial on how to make custom manufacturer decals & shading? Been looking to try my hand at it for a while now, and unfortunately I haven't had any luck. Any help would be appreciated - thanks!

I don't know of a tutorial, but finding Hi-Res images will allow you crop/cut out the lights and grills etc

Its not a tutorial per say but I have a development post from my mod where I talk about my approach to shading here ;
The most important thing to remember about shading is for a paint scheme on a fully white and then fully black base color the highlights/shading will need to appear for both. So with the use of blend layers it can make sure your shading/outline details always appear on a base regardless of its color.

As far as custom parts, it comes down to creating shapes and layers with textures/textures you generate from scratch and using shading/depth to give it the appearance as a car part. The hardest parts are lights either the front or rear lights. I use a lot of layers to create the reflection and refraction effects all the plastic and glass inside a light has so it looks realistic. Also for LED lighting I like to use a texture or a grid pattern and overlay it will a plastic/glass texture with blend modes to give them depth.
