yeah i got all the 12v done and half the common for the buttons. I have to do this sort of thing standing up, as i was a draftsman back in the day and my back seizes up quite readily.

one of the buttons has a weird colour... cant tell in the pic, but it looks a lot whiter than the rest... all the others glow green. cant tell how it would happen. they all have the same white leds... and the same transparent green buttons...

do you have any advise on backlighting text? tried the EL wire i found in a cupboard and that looked 'bandy' if that makes sense.

it is basically clear acrylic, painted opaque black on the back, then engraved in reverse so you can see the lettering from the front clear part
