No individualy textured CSG component can ever receive any texturing 
applied to the whole SCG. Any pigment, texture, finish, interior, normal 
or material applied to a SCG object affect only the untextured 
components. This allow you to have a main texture, then, add individual 
textures as needed to specific elements. It's by design.

If you want to apply some overlay texture to individualy textured 
component, you need to apply that overlay texture as a layered texture 
over the existing texture of each textured component.
