    Hey Meta,

    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.

    Hey, all.

    I'm back from my business trip and have been working on the 848x480 version today. I'll post it soon, followed shortly by an "stretched 800x600" version, as well as versions with a couple of different "glow" colors in the next week or so. For myself, for my Miata, I'm building a 'red orange' version that matches the other dash controls. What other colors do most people want?

    For those who want different backgrounds, car logos, or want to tweak the graphics in other ways, I'm uploading the .PSD's I have right now and will post a link once it's done. (Dial-up sucks!)

    The most time-consuming part, though, is manually building the skin.xml for different resolutions. And, as I don't have phone or GPS yet, while I can build the graphics for the screens, I can't very well test the coord's in the XML file. Anyone else wanna take this on?

    The .psd files for the black&white 848x480 version are located here. The file is a little over 9 mb.

    It's only the main, music, musicmanager, video, videomanager and dvd screens, but you can use these to tweak, finish the additional screens or change backgrounds. Enjoy.

    Here we go...

    Brushed Metal Stretched 800x600 Black & White

    Brushed Metal 848x480 Black & White

    Brushed Metal 848x480 Red "down" files

    Brushed Metal 848x480 Blue "down" files

    Note that the RED and BLUE versions only contain the "down" files. You'll first need to download the "Black & White" version, then copy the "down" files into your skin folder.

    Everything is done except the PHONE and DIALOG pages.

    Lemme know what you think.
