    Part BlueDevil / Part BrushedMetal

    I think the Blue Devil skin is the most complete skin available and JohnWPB is not going to call it quits until it is perfect. The blue colors do not go well with my interior so I thought I would try to make a skin to fit my car a little better. I really lack the artistic characteristics required for this. That is why I am resorting to the hack method. This is going to be a slow process but here is the main screen. Most buttons lead to Blue Devil screens right now except the GPS screen which I skinned in this color scheme but I will be replacing the rest little by little. Also, I have not decided which buttons will end up on the main screen when I am done. Any suggestions?
    Thanks all!

    btw, I was going to call it metaldevil since it is a blend of the 2 skins but I am leaning towards metalblade.

    EDIT- I made some adjustments to the layout. Made the control buttons larger and rearranged their layout for easier use.

    I totally agree. I, too, took the features of both skins and created one that better suited my needs and my interior. Kudos to JohnWPB and Guino/FebSperanza for the awesome work on both skins.

    Here's my sample.

    Looking Great!

    Guys, those are both looking really good! I agree... metal devil dosent sound to good. To bad I didnt name the skin Blue Dragon, Steel Dragon would have sounded kewl

    With AfterDigital and a few others wanting a red version of the skin... Red Devil? Someone would think it was something to vacuum the car out with!

    Thanks John. This crap is addicting. I was in a meeting earlier working on the skin and missed about 20 minutes of what was going on. Thank God for minutes!

    Here is the GPS skin. Not as nice as the main screen in my opinion but plenty of screen space for map data. I am going to mess around with the zoom + and - buttons later but this will get the job done.
    Again, any suggestions are welcome.

    Thanks but I am only modifying the great work that John and Guino have done to fit my needs. I will keep this updated but I am not as efficient as John with his skin and I do not have much spare time so this will probably take awhile.

    The 2 darker screens that I have done at this time look awesome against my charcoal dash but it was just a little hard to read in the day light so I made this daylight version. It is easier to see but I foresee an antiglare screen in my future.
