    backlighting fds sig panels with steel backers

    hi guys,
    using old 747 panels i got from a scrappy ,i have fitted backlighting to fds steel backed sig panels,simply drill the panels where you need light with a 5mm hole,fit the light fittings,add 5v,ground the backer and hey presto,great back lighting with replaceable bulbs ,no heat problems and look just like the real panels,
    it cost me about 5 pounds
