restore original icons

Ive had great fun over the past few weeks messing with Leopard and my new macbook, altering aqua scrollbars, adding quicklook plugins and altering folders/icons etc.

For the most part, ive kept backups just in case. Original folder icons etc all backed up.

However I got a little too keen and didnt back up application icons (original ones) Althougth Im happy with what I have now, I cant find anywhere any original icons.

Anyone know where I can find them for future reference?

Cheers

I'm assuming all you did was replaced the icon via the usual method: Opening the Get Info window and pasting the new icon in place of the old one. Restoring the old icon is simple: Just open the Get Info window, select the icon, and press Delete. Poof, the custom icon is gone, and the old icon is back.

what if you edited a folder icon. it doesn't do that, does anyone know a link to a website with the original folder icons to download?
