I tell you what if done right it looks real good,I had to do my ac controls twice but tell you what everybody notices it and likes it,again if you follow Scottys directions it will turn out right.

You need a VERY steady hand, and lots of patience. Also, you can't get the board too hot or you will damage it. I've had quite a few people PM me wanting me to do theirs since they managed to screw them up. Also, some people just don't feel confident soldering such intricate parts so they have had me do theirs as well.

I used 5mm blue LEDs from www.oznium.com
For the resistors, I used a 470 ohm, 1/4 watt resistor on the positive leg of each LED.
I sometimes sand the top of the LED flat for better light spread do it doesn't look like a spotlight.
Another option is to buy flat top LEDs from www.c-leds.com
Then you do not even have to sand the tops flat.
