Now that we have our car prepped and ready for the carbon fiber hood, we are going to create a new canvas so we can create the CF pattern.


Zoom in to the new canvas all the way (1600%). With the rectangle selection tool, select the top/left quarter of the canvas.
Now bust out the gradient tool and fill the selection area with a black-to-white color scheme.

Now select the bottom/right quadrant of the canvas and repeat the gradient filling process.

"Select - All"
then:
"Edit - Define Pattern"
then:
Type in "Carbon Fiber" and hit OK.

Make sure the 2nd layer has been selected, and go to Edit/Transform/Skew.



Now just take the corners of the layer:
