Are you applying the oil and dirt maps to the diffuse channel?

diffuse map maybe, used along with a spec map (to lessen reflection where dirt/smudges are). good luck :thumbsup:

I'm looking to put a brownish oily color around the bottom sides-edges of a valve cover.(upcoming 426 hemi dragster). not looking for a diffuse. it's gotta lay on top. scott

Why don't you have a texture on the second layer and fade it using an alpha so the chrome shows through? Then also add a spec map and reflect map to match where the oil is.
