    Overhead panel lighting.... well sort of...

    After staring at the overhead panel that Gwyn has made, particularly the ones where he has part of them backlit, an idea popped into my head. So I got out a peice of cardboard and cut me a square hole 1" wide by 5/16" tall. Typed out the word "High" and sized it accordingly and printed off . I stapled the piece of paper to the back of the cardboard and set it on top of a flashlight. Bam! The word "High" is highlighted as seen here:

    That is more or less what I'm doing, the holes are cut in my backplate and the stickers are place over the holes. In the silver panels - Fuel,hyd etc. the backlighting is a bit more sophisticated, see the June CP mag.
