Here are a few skins that were laying around. I decided to clean them up and post them.
I worked on the first two for quite a while. The texture underneath the lenses is actually magnified. The effect is quite realistic.

I always wondered what a carbon fiber look would do to my Contoured Glass skins. It's quite nice in my opinion.

This has been updated. See below.

...and this last one is for xsever, who wanted a carbon version of the Blue Window skin.

The carbon version of the Blue Window skin is amazing !
I am using it right now.
Is it possible to make the text field a little bit bigger please? Any font above 12 (Segoe Print) gets cut height-wise.

Yes, and this change is quite easy to make. Simply open the "Carbon Window.skn" file in notepad and change the "editheight=28" to something larger. Start with just a few extra pixels (3 or 4 should be plenty).
If you go really big with it, you'll need to reduce the "edittop=28" by a few pixels in order to make room on the bottom. Otherwise, the bottom of the edit field will cover up the top of the title field.
Since you're pushing me to try new things, I'm pushing you to try new things and edit the .skn file!

For some reason, the Carbon Contoured Glass had some defects. I fixed them and updated the skin. Now it looks like this:

This is perfect !
Editing the .skn file? Peace of cake
Thanks a lot buddy.
Is it possible to introduce some red/silver to the carbon ? I am looking at something like the Mclaren F1 team in Formula 1.
Just another suggestion on my mind to test your artistic skills
