add your cf pattern and make its layer clipping mask overlay then play around with the hood layers brightness until it is similar to mine:

lower the opacity of the cf pattern and then merge down to the hood layer:

ctrl+j to then copy that layer and the sing the colour picker choose a colour from the sky,i used a colour off the car colour because there was very little sky on my image and then ctrl+click ontop of the layer to select around it and then with a large brush on colourmode brush onto the hood layer with the sky colour:

finally overlay the sky coloured cf and then change the opacity of its layer and then the brightness of the original cf layer:

I would suggest to you to take out the sharpen tool and brush over the area's that have more light showing on them to give it a reflective look to it, ya know?

Here, I just took your last image, and took the sharpen tool and brushed over the parts where the light hits the hood, works really well.
