    you must do the file in vista style builder and then

    4. Preview Pane Background Colour on the Right:

    Explorer & Shell - Explorer - ReadingPane - Background - GradientColor1:color
    Explorer & Shell - Explorer - ReadingPane - Background - GradientColor2:color
    Explorer & Shell - Explorer - ReadingPane - Background - GradientColor3:color


    color 1 is the backround

    2 and 3 is for the textcolor!

    Yes you can do it with Restorator, here is a guide for use with Vista but most of it should apply to Windows 7 as well I think. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    just like you mentioned ..

    Explorer & Shell -> Control Panel - > Content Pane - Fill Color black

    Also have to change the Text and fill colors under Styles->ControlPanelStyle to make it readable

    ...

    I could have uploaded my theme but I don't know if it's "legal"; it's basically a "work over" of Mr. Pauli's X Win 7 and some stuff taken from Mr. Grim

    You can upload it bud, just remember to give the contributing artist some credit

    P.S. Where do you change the top pane image with the Header on it, is it in the shell32.dll?
