Amazing work dude!
I wish this had the RGB (128,128,128) color for the "3D objects" areas of the skin.

I find the darker color much more appealing :)

Thanks a lot! This is a somewhat lighter scheme and base color compared to regular classic, so I used a corresponding color for the 3D edge (139, 139, 139). 128 was a little too dark for this one. Maybe you would like the 2.5/2.5.1 series [link]. It's a gray scheme, but uses the traditional classic base colors.

Closer, but still too light for my tastes :P

I'm still amazed by how well you got this theme working. It really is quite impressive.
