    Always nice to see a Range Rover skin.

    Like your nr.3 template better then the others, but don't really like the pink in it, green would be better in a Rover, at least in mine..

    But it's hard to tell what it's like without the button layout.

    The text would look nicer if it's embedded more in the background, maybe a more matching font, similair the Range Rover style would be better, and of course the Landrover logo should be on it.

    I think a range rover skin needs to be clean, simple, and factory-stylish, but most of all easy in use. So I pretty much like your template layout, 'cause it looks clean.

    keep it going!
    Finished!

    Hey m8...

    I dont really like it.... I dunno it doesnt look Range Rover to me... no offense The "Range Rover" needs to be in the RR font I think... and the colors dont really look to match RR's dash... I dunno... just opinions....

    I think MC-Stoo's RR_Console (never finished/released) skin is closer to what you are looking for... maybe you can get some ideas there

    Its shaping Up a bit better... but its a bit "square" the edges need a bit of rounding I think....

    I'd still try to find the RANGE ROVER font, or remove the RANGE ROVER text all together... I dont like the way it looks without the original bonnet/tailgate font, but thats just me tho...

    also I'd round off slightly the green and silver "rectangles" edges... and maybe change that tone of green to match the instrument clusted LCD...
