ok after playing around with a bunch of resistors i had got from radio shack and some more out of my "parts" bin i just couldnt find the level of "brightness" i was looking for so i ended up tying the ground and the 15.2V sources from the original 2 lights together in parallel and ran 6LEDs in series .....PERFECT!!

i set them up in a triangle behind each meter so ive goot a nice green glow coming off of each one

after it gets dark ill take some pics and throw them up

as promised pics of the green

pics came out kind of crappy.... with the flash it was too bright and without was too dark and i havent really figured out how to operate this camera yet

everything came out nice and bright with the exception of the lights behind the clock....

IF i keep the clock in it i may end up going to white LEDs behind it since the light has to filter behind green numbers

the clock in it does not work <needs a motor> and if i cant find a motor for it i think i'm going to tear down a freq counter and install that in the window..... a green LED one of course
