Reflective metal skins would be something from a raytracer. Try downloading PovRAY, it's a free raytracer and isn't too hard to use if you can stand looking at thousands of lines of code.

There was a feature somewhere that tiled the texture onto each surface, but I don't remember what it was. If I find it I'll let you know. Until then the best advice I have is to manually manipulate the surfaces in the TCE.

USSWINGER: If the textures you are gone use are not to big, then I would have open them in a paintprogram and placed all textures in one picture and exported it as one jpg. Then I would have loaded that jpg onto the object and just choosen one surface at a time and draged and resized the surface to the right place on the texture.
