How to fully customize Windows 7 taskbar?

Hi all,
I've been searching for hours and can't find a way to change the taskbar the way i want.
So , at the top of the taskbar are 2 lines in order to highlight the edge. Is there a way to change their color or delete them? I've attached a picture to show you what i mean.

I also tried to find a way to make some registry editing, but failed.

thanks

If you are using the default aero theme I can change that for you, using Windows Style Builder and post it here in a zip folder.
If you are using a custom theme you will need to ask the theme maker. It's not cool to change someone else work.
&
This will be a custom theme and you will need to do 1 of these 2 ways of Enabling custom themes for it to work.

Or

All I need is a name to call the theme.
Let me know.

Here you go download the zip at the bottom of this post to your desktop double-click it and extracted to your desktop then put both 1 Taskbar_Theme folder and 1 Taskbar_Theme.theme file in C:\Windows\Resources\Themes

It will show up in Personalization as Taskbar_Theme

Let me know if it's okay.

Here's the link to the theme charleston2378's deviantART gallery it's more of a dark gray than black. And I have tweaked it to my liking.
The icons are not on the top of my Personalization window those are on a Dock I have at the top of my screen they are set to be on top all the time so when I took that screenshot it was a maximized window that's why you see him there.
