If the left and right borders are inset like that, then the metal gradient should be, too. Otherwise, so far, so good.
However, the gradient effect looks kinda cheesy. It's overused, and looks a little simple. Try some airbrushing.

i would but i dont know how

I think it would look better with a metal border on the left and right edges. I also agree with cleanup about the airbrushing, it's not hard once you get the hang of it.
The cutout buttons look a bit generic to me as well, but other than that it's a nice start.

The airbrush is the little spray can icon on the left.
I find it easiest to start off fairly messy using black and white, then use the push tool to clean it up.

find a skin you really like that is metal and zoom in real close to see how the black and white mix into eachother, then try to mimic that using the dodge and burn tools or the airbrush, i find it easier to use the dodge and burn, but some people like airbrush, but dont rip anybody, just use them as tools to figure out how light works and such, then itll be easy to dodge and burn or airbrush, youll get it, its kinda hard to learn
