    I recall someone mentioned this before, I think he put a sheet of frosted perspex in there somewhere and it looked miles better! :-)

    Not sure, it's cheap enough on eBay though.
    Dont think it was too thick, just enough to diffuse the light. :-)

    That`s easier work around for sure I`d do just that, if I had problem with too bright screen.

    That's why I used 0603's instead of PLCC2's on Rich's (Kman247) advice. Although they're tiny, each one's about a quarter of the size of a grain of rice (there's four in the bottom left of the pic below), but they give a MUCH better level of lighting compared to the rest of the dash.
