Win7 Style Builder: Importing Taskbar from another theme

I like this theme called Planisphere 2. It looks like this:



The only problem I have with it is the taskbar. I want to keep the taskbar from my current theme (7.5):



So I would like to make Planisphere 2.0 look like the following (the image below is photoshopped):




I tried importing TaskBar & Tray Notify but the results were disastrous:




Which elements do I have to import? Please help!

You can export the images at the locations in the screenshot below and then it import them back in the other theme.

Thanks for the reply Jerry. I followed your instructions exactly and this is what I've got now:



As you can see a bit of the old taskbar remains (those are taskbar buttons without icons, yuck!). I'm sure importing those images would have worked on most themes but this one is stubborn. Any ideas?

(My current theme now has a fully transparent taskbar so that's why most of it is invisible.)

Thanks Jerry now the taskbar is invisible again! However, taskbar icons are still missing as shown below.



I've also noticed that the taskbar has retained its Planisphere 2 size, which is a bit greater than 7.5's. Do you know how to change that as well?

You will need to change the CONTENTMARGINS:MARGINS at the location shown in the screenshot below.
The original ones are 10, 10, 4, 4 Notice there is a space after the ,
The sequence for numbers are left right top bottom the bigger the number the more it hides things.

Checked the difference between the 2 themes at the locations in the screenshot, topmost location originally SIZINGMARGIN:MARGIN was 0, 0, 2, 0 and the other 2 locations did not have them they were added. If that's not it I'm not sure where else to check.
