    It's definitely going to require some artistic endeavor...

    Unless the picture is such low res that you need to use a one pixel line,
    Enlarge the area where you're going to work.
    Use the Polygon Lasso Tool to draw where you are putting the grill
    On a New Layer, Fill the shape with white, Deselect.
    On a New Layer, with the Polygon Lasso Tool, Select a section of the area to Fill with a blue-to-white gradient sampled from the photo.
    Reduce the opacity of the chrome layer to match photo.
    Repeat the last two steps for angles as needed.
    At a higher zoom detail, use the Airbrush Tool with some darks and whites (sample from original)to paint smoothing stokes.
    Use the Blur Tool (2 px 40%) along seam lines to smoothe 'jaggies'

    1) the Eyedropper tool samples a colour from your picture - problem is that the chrome area has lots of reflections and thus contains dozens of colours; the best you can have is an average

    2) the line tool is the obvious way

    Need help with making a custom color and drawing basic lines.

    I am new to Photoshop. I am hoping someone can help me here. I run a business selling chrome grille accessory kits for autos. An obvious increase in sales is evident if I can provide before and after pics of our kit on the cars I sell the kits for. Basically here is what I am trying to do....I have enclosed a pic below. You can see the chrome border of the grille and then the black diagonal slats above it. I want to be able to take the color of the chrome border and use it to draw lines in that chrome color onto the diagonal slats. So...
    1-How do I make that chrome a custom color?
    2-How can I draw a diagonal straight line in that color?
