Edit admin theme

Hello, I'm wanna edit the default admin theme with CSS.
I was thinking on duplicating commerce_kickstart_theme but I see some CSS are placed on commerce_kickstart/modules
What approach should I use to ensure future updates of the commerce kickstart?
Thank's for all your work.

I would create a new theme, call it "My Shiny" or something like that, and set the .info file like such:

// Filename = my_shiny.info

name = My Shiny
description = Tweaking the base admin theme for Drupal Commerce.
core = 7.x
base theme = shiny

// Override CSS
stylesheets[all][] = custom_admin_styles.css

This way your tweaks can survive and you can update the base theme along with Kickstart from now until D8 arrives :D

Thank's Josh, but what to do about the CSS files that live inside the modules like this one? /profiles/commerce_kickstart/modules/commerce_kickstart/commerce_kickstart_menus/commerce_kickstart_menus.css

I will try to overwrite it on my custom theme CSS, I hope if this is loaded after the module's CSS it will work.

Thank's for all.

Add this to your theme.info file: stylesheets[all][] = css/commerce_kickstart_menus.css

Copy the whole stylesheet from: /profiles/commerce_kickstart/modules/commerce_kickstart/commerce_kickstart_menus/commerce_kickstart_menus.css

Edit what you want to change and remember that by doing this will prevent the default css file from loading.
