I had some time on my hands (finally) and finished your skin for 800x600 screens (actually I set mine to 800x580 so I could see the taskbar). I searched high and low for this thread when I finished but couldn't find it till today, so I started another.
Brushed metal 800x600 skin
Hope you don't mind. OBTW, I used pieces of the original CF skin so its not the most professional. But, I was able to increase the size of several external apps. Unfortunately, the skin package is 2.2MB and I have nowhere to host it.
