well whenever you are tryin to chop a colored car to white its gonna be hard, but i can be done, try first the desaturate in PS then adjust the contrast and brightness fx and it should work

the darker the color(black etc.) the harder it is to change to a lighter color...

That is just using desaturation and brightness/contrast. You must mess around with the Curves selection.

dont mess with hue saturation, just select desaturate, then brightness and contrast and then for further touch up try the curves and levels, like checica mentioned thumbsup
