    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.
