i`m new in Orchard, im using v1.8 and i try to customize the TimeMachine Theme!
I make a menu and i put it in AfterMain Zone! My question is : where can i find the code/css for this menu, i want to customize it!
I looked into the time machine theme in matrix in styles --> site.css but here is only the main menu from navigation area!
When i make another menu...where can i find the code/css ?
Thank you very much and sorry for my english!

From the sounds of it you have some reading to do.
In short you create new .cshtml files in the theme directory that orchard will look for when rendering the page, the files will need to be named according to conventions in order to be picked up by orchard.

I strongly advise you to read up on the following pages to solidify your understanding on this. To help you along there is a module shipped with Orchard called Shape Tracing, when you enable this module it places a designer tool at the bottom of the front end pages that allows you to explore the shapes, models and alternates used on the page.

Basic Orchard Concepts (make sure you read the UI Composition section)

Alternates (as well as specific alternate names for the menu shapes)

Hope all that helps.
