[DML] Re: Shifter Lights LED conversion?



Hi Jack,

I have made the conversion to LEDs for the selector plate. Contrary to 
an ordinary bulb, a LED has no "spread". This makes for a very hi-
lighted "Drive" position (where the socket for the illumination is) and 
almost fainted for the other shift positions. 
Unless you are going to make the light follow the stick (for the mark) 
and use a second row of LEDs beneath the positions (for lighting the 
position characters) it is not an improvement IMO.
I still am considering a better alternative, but have not yet come up 
with it.

Welmoed.
