    i did a quick search, but i was in a hurry, sorry if i missed something. i'm familiar with candy bar, but i thought there was a way to change the finder icon manually.

    Not the Finder one.
    Most others you can do by . . .
    1. Click on icon you want to use
    2. Press Command-C (Copy)
    3. Click on icon you want changing
    4. Press Command-I (Get Info)
    5. Click on the icon in the 'Get Info' window
    6. Press Command-V (Paste)

    you actually can change the Trash/Finder icons manually. if you go over to interfacelift.com and read their guides they tell you how to. but i don't recommend it at all. its easier and safer to use Candybar
