Default Looks cool - how is it done?

How did he get his lights to be this shade of white as opposed to the orange we have? Is it a simple job?

There's a HowTo video somewhere on YouTube I think it was. I watched it recently. It's by one of our Polish collegues and shows how the two light colour effects were done.

There may be a link on the Polish owners website - where the TOAF guys hang out.

Looks ok if you like that sort of thing, but the flicker would drive me nuts unless the video was of poor quality.

The HowTo demo shows red and white LEDs mounted behind the dials, so they'll look fine in reality. I think the flickering effect is an artefact from the video camera.

THe only thing I liked about his dials in the video was the fact the IPK was working correctly!
