    Guys,

    What colour is the acrylic plastic which sits above the chest lights to dim them slightly?

    Also,as my Fett is permanently on a mannequin i dont really see the need to have working lights(thats just my personal taste!!!) But,are there cheaper and thinner alterantives to working lights? i.e. a permanent laser printed light or anything similar?

    Cheers

    Lee

    Hey Lee,

    You can use some green acetate from any art shop bruv (double it up) and as for none working lights.. you can try the rear bike light (Halfords) with pre-printed acetate over the top? I *think* TK409 did something like this for budget Fetts?

    Way back when I first started and there were no electronic chest lights to be had, I cut a stencil from black sheet plastic. I put one of those bike lights behind the openings and that worked well at the time. Gosh we've come a long way . . .
