Re: 1500 lcd panel

I thought about leds not putting the light where it was needed, when I get my new windshield I'll be halfway to dismantling dash again so I will have a play with other types, at the moment too busy building other Farkles for it

I only used white leds without the blue rubber bits on them

Re: Broken studs on side panel

yes I noticed that, but I actually had 2 plastic ones broken off.

The glue I used was made for all hard plastics, I glued 2 offcuts togetherfrom the stick I bought, try as I may, I could not break it.

Thanks for your reply
Regards
Alex.

P.S. I like your slogan, my sentiments exactly.
