  • w.i.p. controls in console lid..looking for some alternatives

    This is my first attempt at fiberglassing and so far it seems to be going pretty well. I'm just about done putting on the fiberglass and will start with the bondo soon.

    I want to somehow light the keyboard, or shine some light on it. I don't want it to be something that would be annoying to see out of the corner of your eye all the time. Any suggestions on what to use? I found this, but I'm thinking it might be to bright. Anyone know if the ALM-R-O3 is very bright? I'm thinking something like that and then bondoing over the top to make it less noticable. Or would I be better to get a single led and bondo it in?

    I'm sure something like this has been done many times but I couldn't find anything but a few links to suppliers.

    Here is where I'm at so far with the lid.

    Car-mada-puter Epia MII12000, 40gig HD, 512mb ram, Morex 3688 case, M1-atx and XP Pro.

    Looks good so far. Could also look into one of those usb lights. Shouldnt be too bright.
