Hi Alan,

The old EL panels used to fade over time until they eventually stop working. Doubt you'll find a direct replacement but other EL panels may well fit and I've even seen mods done with COB LED panels as a replacement.

Let us know how you get on.

Oh, if you need a schematic/service manual let us know Wink


All the best,
Victor

You can buy what they call "Electroluminescent Tape" but the voltage they sell has many choices but i think i will go for 12v as i can pickup a feed for it.
And you can cut it to size as long as you don't cut the feed but that is just a bit of common sence lol.
Thanks Victor

No worries Alan,

EL tape was going to be my next suggestion but you're obviously on the ball. I'll leave you to it Wink

All the best,
Victor
