Part 1 ($200): Uncoded psd for the following key and the most complex pages.

http://finesellers.com/index.php?a=2&b=160 (typical listing)
Part 2 ($200): Winner gets to create Uncoded psd for the remaining pages. These additional pages have varying degree of complexity, e.g. About Us and pages seen in the listing process or registration process. Will consider additional $100 if part 2 involves more work than expected.
