Nothing really 'advanced' about the editing...

Cloned an and out-of-place indicator lamp from the pre-indicator era fender. Slight adjustments to brightness and contrast and bumped the saturation of the reds to bring out the colour of the bonnet a little. Noise reduction and mild USM. Resized and added border.

From the Critique Club:

This shot is very nicely done! I am impressed in how you captured the chrome details without blowing out the exposure. You have excellent lines and an awesomely simple color scheme. There is very little here that I don't like. The only thing that I can really think that would improve this shot would be to brighten it up just a touch. In advanced editing this could be done without blowing out the chrome.

Oh and with all that shiny chrome, I'm impressed that you or the camera are not in the shot! ;-)
