    Yes it was a very tough project and I still haven't finished not happy with certain aspects of it ....i had to colour the digits with an permanent neon pen by hand without going onto the black.

    It seems real promising. I've ordered some myself to put in a Copal 705L. It has the same bulb as the Panasonic RC-7462 (Panasonic Part Number NL80T8B).
    Some of the LED strips claim a 30,000 hour life which is about 3 times as long as standard lighting.

    I'm going to try an LED strip myself soon. I'm going to try to find a smaller converter that will fit in the clock. Did yours turn out ok Troy ?
