/me thinks is would have been better if all of the badge could have been lit rather than just the centre of it
still - origional and looks good none the less
Daves previous athlon badge looked much better IMHO the bit tech badge doesnt seem to suit the led light coming through
the problem was my LED , my LED had a narrow viewing angle which is one of the bad things about having a high MCD (brightness) led a diffused led with a lower rating would give the same effect as dave's which was awsome!
unfortunatly I only have High intensity 1000/1500mcd led's non diffused.
just did this using a high mcd and low view angle.To get it to diffuse I did the following:
Cut out a large square behind the badge, quite thick plastic. Then on the inside I glued a plate of clear plastic to which I glued a single layer of tissue, most tissue is 3 ply so i glue 1 ply to it.... this diffused the light just enough to light up the whole badge without dulling it.
