Does anyone have a cool fusion drive desktop icon?

You know how you can get multiple icons for Firewire, USB 3.0, AirPort drives etc etc. There is hardly anything "fusiony"

I searched google and only really came up with one which is the old HDD icon with a fusion swirl on it.

I am not a graphic artist so I can't do much in that area of Macs :(

I'm a total noob @ image editing. I'm sure tons of people on here can do better...



EDIT:

Well, I can't get it to work on my mac....

NOW, I don't have an answer, but I'm assuming that you want a different HD icon to appear on the desktop (DT)? I have Finder set not to show my HD on the DT, but I just tested and could not see an 'easy' way to change that icon w/i the options of the GUI - I'm sure that some change in the Terminal pointing to or replacing the icon name would work, but my knowledge there is as a newbie.

However, I hope that other more experienced 'Terminal' members may 'chime in' w/ suggestions or even comments of making an icon change w/i the GUI of the OS - :)

The icon that I want to change (as I do with all my drives) is the icon on the desktop.

Here is your easy way... :)

I hit "CMD i" or go to info on the drive. The you the leave that window and go to the pic you want... You "copy" the icon you want (say a PNG etc on a webpage) by "CMD c" or right clicking and clicking "copy". The just click the little icon in the top left (it goes active) of the drive info window and hit "CMD v" for paste.

That then changes the associated icon for the drive, which shows up on all Macs it is shared on; on the desktop; in disk util GUI etc. It even shows up when you unplug the drive in plug it in elsewhere.
