Bastardized Scroll Bar Component (MX)

I want to be able to make one Scroll bar component, control 2 identical dynamic text boxes.

The reason for this is that I want to make the scrolling text apear to have a drop shadow. Hence the 2 identical text boxes (one with black text underneath) being controlled by the 1 scrollbar component.

There’s so much code in that scrollbar component that comes with MX.

Any ideas?
