    Interior rangefinder color

    I just got done fixing the lights in my rangefinder. Before I seal everything back up I wanted to see if anyone knew what the interior color of the ESB range finder was? (White/blue/green)

    Was there even a color to the light as i seem to remember that a film cell was actually used inside it...

    Was thinking of using a see through color film to "color" the light if needed. Currently its bright white and I'm not sure if I like it or want to change it.

    Thanks for your help.

    I seem to remember someone saying that a cell from Lawrence of Arabia was used??? If I recall, it was a desert scent, so think beige/sand colors. **Note, I can't recall if the Lawrence of Arabia cell was certain, or just speculated.

    I'd say, anything yellowish/light amber should give you the effect you're looking for.

    Looking for the color, as mine is currently a pretty bright white when the rangefinder goes down. Didn't know if there was an "official" color for screen accuracy.
