They are in /System/Library/CoreServices/Dock.app (right/ctrl-click to Show Package contents then navigate further) Contents/Resources/ in there you'll find finder.png and trashempty.png/trashfull.png.

Replace those files with appropriate png files of the same size (it might be a good idea to backup Dock.app first), and restart (or just log out and back in or, just restart the Dock by typing killall Dock in the Terminal).

After doing this repairing permissions is actually a good idea... :)

i dont seem to have core services in library
did you look in the library folder in the folder called "system", note the path is root(right when you open the disk)/system/libaray

No... GO directly on your HD. Then find the folder System. In that there should really only be one folder, called Library, and in that you'll find CoreServices.

I am beginning to suspect that you might be in over your head on this one and rather should try, and probably spend $13 on Candybar or similar...

Basically, yes... you will have to authorize this with your admin password, though...
