    I've got Tiger installed on an iBook G3 Clamshell(lime).

    I'd just like to change the Apple icon and Spotlight icon in the top menu bar to lime green.

    Is this possible? I know Photoshop very well, if someone can just tell me where to find these files, I can change the color and replace the files...

    Thanks!

    So I take it this isn't possible without a whole theme being applied?

    It's possible, since I've done it before, but I don't recall where the file was stored. For the Apple Logo, you have to use ResEdit to get into a file called Extras.rsrc (or Extras2.rsrc, I don't recall which) buried in your System folder in the Carbon framework. It takes some care, but it can be done. Not sure on Spotlight, but it's probably similar.
