S2::Component: Disabling friends foreground/background colours.

(Cross posted to s2styles and component_help)

I'm currently using Component as my journal style, with a custom theme that uses the default colour scheme of black, white and various shades of grey. I've used the various tutorials found in component_help to tweak it and short of coding my own S2 style (which I may plan to do so this summer) I am almost content with the way it looks. However, one thing that is annoying me is the fact that on my friends view, the background and foreground colours associated with my friends don't fit in well with the layout; I think it makes it look patchy, especially when people use icons that aren't 100x100 pixels. The fact that the colour of the component background is #4F4F4F and the closest in the 45-colour friends palette is #CCCCCC also doesn't help. I'd like to change this to what is shown in the second image below:

Does anyone have any idea how this could be achieved whilst retaining the current colours? Ideally I would be looking for a solution to disable the colours used to represent friends, or if this cannot be done to disable icons from my friends view entirely.

Thanks in advance.

background image disappears

okay, now that I've sorted out the additional component problem, my background image drives me nuts.

I know where to go and what to do, so I enter the URL and everything is fine, as long as the homepage where I got the image from is open, as soon as I close the window and refresh my lj, the image disappears. Any suggestions?

This has probably been covered a million times over, and I apologize for asking it, but could someone please give me the code to add extra text boxes to my journal? I'd like one to display my info, another to display some icons, and another for links.

If someone could just paste the code I need to put in the override box, I would very much appreciate it. Thank you so much. :)

Hi. I know this has probably been covered many times before, but could someone please point me in the direction of a tutorial that explains how to compress the Component style so it doesn't consume the whole screen? Or could someone just show me the code/where to put it please?

Thanks in advance.
