I love my sPOD. But when I swapped out the standard rocker switch covers for the Contura Laser Etched Switch Covers from OTRATTW, I was unhappy with the fact that they were a little too bright for my taste, and they were all one color (white).

So, I took some of the colored gel film used for stage lighting and cut it into some very small pieces. I figure if the film can withstand the heat of stage lighting, it will surely handle the small amount of heat generated by the lights behind the switches. I used hot melt glue to attach the film to the switch, so I can remove it easily if I'm unhappy with the result.

Here are a few pics.

No difference when the switches are off.


Modified switch on left, unmodified on right. Not as bright, and slightly more amber. Woohoo!


The difference is a bit more pronounced that it appears in the picture. I think it came out the way I wanted, but I'll need to see how it looks tonight after it gets dark. If it's still too bright, I can always use a second layer of film...

I obviously have too much time on my hands... :whistling:

That's a great idea. I'm going to have to look into that. :)
