Gang, so after a long trip my headlight casting has arrived and has been soldered to the front plate. Looking for advise on how to make lit number lens for this casting. Thanks, Bruce in Mount Airy, MD

What were you planning on using for the headlight beam itself?

The factory headlight bulb does little or nothing for the number boards, so am thinking a grain of wheat or 2 grain of rice bulbs may work best. Thanks

I was going to suggest the grain of wheat if you cannot get something bigger in there; the directional qualities of LED's make me question the use of one, but it's entirely possible that I am wrong.
