Not recently, but I do think you're going to have to take a
"piecemeal" approach to the problem - IE, make a copy of the layer,
delete all but the car's side, and then flip it.  Repeat for other
sections of the car.  It's a big job - expect to spend a couple of
hours at the very least... That's why I was wondering if you could
park the car in a shallow puddle and then take the photo - that would
probably be less work (and look more realistic) :)

I'm a graphic designer by trade - hit me off-list if you want me to
take a look at the photo you're trying to reflect.
