good work! And thanks for all the info on the LED's. Did you pull any off or did you measure it all in situ?
With that base off, and some screws threads there, it will make it really easy to position it somewhere nice on the console and stabalise it with some frame or sorts. I have just the place waiting for it.
The soldering of the LED's looks to be tricky, i'm not a great fan of SM componenets. I'm after an amber colour, and amber is made from red and bit of yellow. I guess I'll have to use Red LED's and hope that the mix with the blue ring will not be too violet. Otherwise I'll have to bleach that ring yellow, or maybe sand it to make it a little whiter then colour over it, which would make it darker I guess, but I'm not fussed about the brightness, only about the colour matching.
