I'm always tinkering.

Daisy comes with a very ordinary transmission indicator lamp, which must exist purely to comply with an ADR, but being a budget car why would we expect any better?
To use up some time I cobbled a few bits together to make a three coloured LED lamp for it, I just grabbed a 470 Ohm resistor that was handy and series connected them, 11 mA current flow seemed like a good number so I kept it.
I never measured anything so anybody else who may try this will be sure to improve on my ordinary effort, but eventually it did work after sorting out issues with plugging it into the existing T5 socket, including blowing a fuse that took an age to locate.
The end result though is nicer yet still retains my groanworthy finish and touch.
