Looks good Keith pal .....

Hope it's ok to make a suggestion, but maybe try a drop shadow or two on the logos which might give the overall composition some depth and add to the sort of 3D effect.
Plus I realise your trying to create a vectored seamless tiled background (I tend to stay away from using these patterned backgrounds), but it can often have an undesired effect. (see magnified area) I've had this problem in the past where you can see a shadow where the join overlaps. I know it's almost impossible to see without zooming in to the level I have & is irrelevant when creating wallpapers etc., but it can be quite apparent when printed or creating a business card, logo designs etc.
Hope this helps a bit for those that may want to use these kind of effects in the future

When Nissan came out with the Pathfinder I bought one and loved it.

Now have a Hyundai Santa Fe and no complaints with it. They had a bad rap when they first came out but over the years have greatly improved plus 100,000 miles either a 5 or 10 year factory warranty.

Take a test drive in both and then make your decision.

Thanks for the advice Nick. Although drop shadows don't show much because of the colors it does make a difference. I also take your point about patterns. I take it you don't get this effect if you do it the way you did in your tutorial.

That's what my wife drives a 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe with only 80,000 miles on it still looks like new, you're right they come with a 10 year 100,000 mile warranty.

Did you use the drop shadow tool ? It's best if you just duplicate all the objects, fill them with black then convert them to a bitmap. Once you've done this move the bitmap behind the vector objects and add some blur to the bitmap image.

If you use the tut example I made, you wont get the overlap in your background
