    You could get more blue LEDs and make yourself a suit out of them so wherever you go everything is blue.

    Or you could get clear glasses and tint them blue for the same effect and less effort

    I wouls guess pushing in into platicine and pulling out to make a mound and then filling that with either fiblreglass resin, clear nail varnish or araldite.


    Next one would be to put something, acetate or similar dunno really on the back of the switch and just fill the hole in the switch with something clear.

    Not sure of the suitability of the suggestion(s) so no warranty implied or given.

    did my heater dials today but it went bloody crap for my soldering iron tip is too big plus I used cheapo led's so they dont even all look the same colour! :@ gonna wait for new LED and new soldering iron tip to arrive then redo the lot, ballache or what! what have people used to replace the 7 small SMD bulbs that are behind the heater control LCD though? cos the only SMD ones Ive got are like twice the size....

    have you got any pics? and i dunno about the smd bulbs mate, Iv not worked out how to change my millage on my dials or the display on the heater. I know how to do the rest just need a new heater as messed it up used the wrong tool for the job now all my heater unit does is give me cold air lol no display or anything haha. I need the same smd bulbs thats behind the heater display to do the buttons on the 18 button obc and the green leds on the heater unit buttons if i remember right.
