Very nice looking project, love it. However, I am very sketchy about how it is illuminated, and whether or not the backing was left on. Thanks for posting.

joelhunn: thnx for ur comment :) i appreciate it.
yeah the back cover was removed allowing light to pass through.
the board was suspended & a bright led torch was focus over from a distance thus it illuminated. nb: fluorescent paint was used.
Ahhh! Thanks for the clarification, I would really like to try this, nice work
this came out rad! Thank you so much for posting this. I like the color you chose a lot.
