    Hi Graham,
    Re the spec map, use light purple like #c680c6 for the metal sides and use a medium green for the decals that go on top.

    Hi thanks. Do I colour it like a normal skin? I've never done a spec map before so I'm not quite sure how to go about it. Using Photoshop CS6 at the moment. . .

    Starting with the 100% green spec map, I'd proceed that way:

    - make a copy of your skin psd

    - merge your decal layers together to have one decal layer

    - get rid of the paint layers

    - put a copy of the green spec map under the decals (you may have to resize, as usually they come in lower res)

    - draw in vector a purple shape covering the metal sidepods on top of the green spec map, set blending mode to hue or color (whatever works best); if you need to adjust brightness, use opacity and fill ratios, or use an adjustment layer on top of the shape with clipping mask

    - duplicate the green spec map, put it on top of the decal layer with clipping mask; put an adjustment layer with clipping mask on top to make it a little darker/greener.

    That way you can always reverse/tinker things until you are happy with the result.
