The Fuel Agency's client, Nissan After Sales, needed the removal of car features not available for the Australian release of the Nissan Juke. Fuel briefed Stephen on the range of required retouching, from simple wing mirror colour changes to more complex trim removal that required rebuilding the image below. Franklin worked through all the requested changes creating clean postproduction edits. The resulting photos were visually convincing and ready for use in the Nissan After Sales marketing brochure, avoiding the need for a reshoot.

After the rear window guard was removed, the front guard was changed to a simulated semi-opaque material. The colour trim for the wing mirror was also adjusted to match the red car body colour.
