Default blue light inside a meter

Hi everybody, this is my first post in almost a year!! when I started building my Z v4 but problems put me away of this project for a while, but now I'm almost finishing my amp. The question is how do you put a blue light inside a meter that lit the case very well, I did it but barely can see the light.Please help me to finish this baby!!. Thanks Porfi

for my meters for my aleph2's, im planning on using refractive and reflective properties. i will shine light into plexi-glass sheets, and have a circle cutout in the middle. the outside edges will be covered, but the insides will be exposed. light will only shine from the rough surfaces. if the plexi is smooth and clear, it wont transmit light, but if you score or scuff of the surface, it will glow.

in my "picture", the led is inside the plexi. just drill a hole, or carve out a place for it in the edge. then, cover it completely with tape or something. tape all surfaces that you dont want light coming through (only necessary for scuffed surfaces, smooth ones wont transmit much light).

sony uses this on many of their products. on their plasma with the "floating glass", they have embossed a "sony" logo into the glass. then they shine light at it sideways, only the opaque logo lights up, but the glass is otherwise dark. light just bounces off of surfaces when it hits it.

its worth a shot.

When are you going to finish those Aleph 2 amps? Any new pictures? I haven't seen anything new for almost a year.
