Help with Theme Creation

I have been working on a theme for a bit and am trying to figure out how you change the color or image background of the details pane windows explorer. This is what i mean:

I have gotten the pane to the top with reshacker simply changing some "bottom"s to "top"s But I want some custom Backgrounds in there. Any help would be freaking sweet. Thank you

Oh and the image is of sagorpirbd's longhorn theme for Windows 7

EDIT: I know where to edit it, i want it translucent though.
