How is this airbrushed?

DIY -

Step 1 - Setup camera on a tripod, set the settings manually
Step 2 - Take a photo with the bonnet down
Step 3 - Take a photo with the bonnet up
Step 4 - Open both photos in photoshop and put them in to one canvas
Step 5 - Set the top one to layer mask, and mask it so you can see the engine
Step 6 - ???
Step 7 - Profit

I cant, cops in my area are really anal about it, got pulled over 3 times for no front plate and after much decisions on where to place it I decided to rock it in the lower front grill. I like how it looks, better than the traditional front plate mount IMO

Nice pic! Was actually considering dropping my plate down into the bottom mesh too but wasn't sure how it would look. Actually looks pretty decent there. Any more views of the front end to help me make my mind up?

+1 but at least it's mounted on the grilles and not higher up like a majority of others.
