    Yellow filter on clocks!

    Today I thought I would have a go at stripping the black faced 160 clocks I bought a while ago, all was going well till I got the mat off only to find it's covered in the yellow stuff!

    Totaly gutted as I was lead to belive that 160's had a White backing, now I know Ken (Oddjob) had a go a while back without much luck so with nothing to loose got the sand paper out and too to the yellow backing only to find this....







    really pleased with the out come! And only took 10 mins to do! And now I can happly convert with White LEDs without the crappy yellow stuff messing it up for me,

    So if your stuck with yellow backed clocks, don't go buying different ones, take the sand paper to the first and see what happens!

    Nope not got round to fitting the LEDs yet, only had it up to my torch as am using White LEDs and it looks really good, am also going one extra and changing the colour of the other LEDs the ones that light up the oil warning, eml, coolent..... And so on! I can get you a photo through the torch if you like?
