    Man, that is some of the nicest chrome effects that I have seen

    Could you have a look at the Blue Devil menu and add Chrome effects to the buttons? That would be SO neat!!

    I'm interested! It's something different from the rest of the skins. Do you have plans for an XM screen?

    Yes i do plan to make all the screens later. I need to buy the parts for xm and test. I have never done this before, so it is taking awhile to program buttons and such.

    SteveC.... I will have a look at the Bluedevil skin, later. I also want to ask the creator if he/she doesn't mind too.

    Thanks everyone for the great response!

    (Also does anyone have any tips on how to get the phoco skin working with the battery and signal bar? I only have a demo of the new phoco 1.7, so my testing is a bit limited.)

    PM me anytime if you need an XM tester. I have XM in my car and use it everyday.

    I know that JohnWPB won't mind - he's a really cool guy and has provided his PSDs so people can play with the design and add and change it.

    Someone had a go doing the chrome edges using a PS Plugin but the effect was nothing like your awesome creation.

    You are a god of Chrome!!

    This might be really cheeky but my friend and I have played around all day with Photoshop trying to recreate your chrome effect and our's look complete 'toilet paper' compared to yours. Could you post a PSD with the layers showing how you created that effect?

    I'm telling everyone who will listen about it

    me thinks its a cut and paste from another image, judging by the reflections seen in the chrome, particularly left hand side where the green is..

    Thanks SteveC, The chrome is made with a PS plug-in called "Alien skin Eye Candy 5"
