It took me 2 months to do this but i redid my desktop tool bar thingy ....i downloaded some program that lets you change the "skin" so i uploaded some pics , did some photochoppin and put them inthe program and modified the pics till they worked how i wanted

The Start button is replaced with the Cadillac Script , when you move over the "start button" it turns into the Logo for the remote Start on a 2005 STS ....the buttons across the bottom for the windows were inspired by the dash on a 89 Fleetwood Brogham , where the warning light shows thru the woodgrain ....

I call it Cadillac XP:



pretty cool , esp for someone like me who has to tech themselves how to do it .....but i saw my little brother had made his look diffrent ....so i wanted ot make mine diffrent too

Helpful tip:

Paint it with DOT3 brake fluid. Paint comes off & plastic is unharmed, just wash it in soap & water before trying to reapply paint! :bouncy:
