Mango Skin Pack. Can be modded?

Hello I need to change some colors in this pack. I hate those purples and oranges colors of the pack(WP7 DARK VISUAL STYLE), the things I want to change are surrounded by orange. Many thanks.

Look in C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\ for a WP7 Dark folder and open up the wp7 dark.msstyles or wp7 mango.msstyles the one you want to use with a resource hacker open the image folder and find the images and edit them.
