    Upcoming look: Pontiac MMI

    This is a skin based on Btbe's MMI skin; modified for use in my T/A. I am also making a black & white version for day viewing. The night version uses red and orange designed to match the dash illumination in my T/A. I will be making the skins and PSD's available, I just have to finish all the screens. Here are a few preview pics:

    Day menu:



    Mp3 Player:



    I might end up inverting the colors on the day skin, I need to do some testing to see what is more visible in the sun. Give me a week or so, and I should have them finished for everyone to download.

    This was a really good start. The new logo for Brushed Metal looked good, but it was a 3rd Gen Phoenix.

    Do you still have the PSDs for this? Can you release them?

    Nice coloring... I may have to use this skin when I get around to throwing a carpc in my 92 Formula...
    By the way, I have a pic that would look really good with this skin... of an orange "flaming chicken" ...
    PM me, and I'll post the pic here, so you can take a look at it.

    It's not an effing chicken, dammit. It's a Phoenix.

    Look at the beak. It's a bird of prey. Not common poultry. That is about the most irritating and insulting BS I can think of. And (as you might be able to tell) a pretty big pet peeve of mine. lol (It's actually most likely in the Hawk family too. Falcons and Eagles are similar, but slightly different.)

    In Russian Mythology it left a feather behind, causing a prince to go on a mission to return it, and got a wish granted in return.

    It's present in Japanese, Chinese, and Hindu mythology as well, and the Chrisitans also adopted it.


    Nice pic though. But that's a 2nd Gen Phoenix. (a '73 variant by the looks of it - modified of course)

    (Thine is Irish Gaelic for Fire. Any guesses what …an is? )
