Hi, rudyp16

Techniques. 

The image you posted was fairly "dirty." Obvious compression artifacts, and pixellated. So I used a denoise adjustment to get rid of the artifacts. Then went over the pink areas w. the flood selection tool w. a low setting, 8% tolerance. Where I couldn't get a clean outline line, I used the selection brush at 4 px to add or subtract. Then Used the HSL adjustment to change to shift and deepen the selected pinks. There were some problems, so I used a blur brush here and there to smooth the pixelization.

I probably should have resampled the image to a larger size to reduce the pixelization. 

Later, I looked up images of the car, and saw that the red was darker, more like "fire truck red." So I went back, made selections using the pen tool, turned to layers, then flooded w. reds sampled from photos. Adjusted opacity and merged down. Better results, but I've been doing vector pen drawing for quite awhile now. Not "auto-magic" and a little too saturated to fit the rest of the image.

I usually take more than 5 minutes to devour those sandwiches & wash it down with a beer, but to each his own, I suppose. xD

Another simple technique

1. Add pixel layer with blend mode Darken
2. Paint with red brush

Depending on your painting abilities you might want to first make a selection of the areas to paint using the Freehand Selection Tool or other selection methods.

Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be concerned about.

Don't forget the reflections in the chrome, a small bit on the black cars bumper and the diner doors, also the steering wheel and a small bit of the console just in front of the steering wheel and the wheel rims.
