After installing the FCU I got the message that CS had to change it's config. This worked fine. The only problem I had was that Network Connections hung my system. Other than that all seems OK.

If you use the button in CSM it appears only partially because it's so large but when you hover over it and select it you can see the image changes. I think the door is closed and opens when hovered and changes color when selected. Is it possible you don't need three images?
