Hi Igor,

I had contemplated doing it to my 130 for the very same reasons but decided against it in the end as the EL panel is a very thin sheet under the LCD and the light emits from its face. I couldn’t see how I would fit an array of LEDs with a suitable diffuser in the same space. It would have effectively made the display panel much thicker.

The other option I thought about was using a fiberoptic panel like this https://www.ebay.com/itm/Medfusion-3500-Syringe-Pump-Fiber-Optic-Dual-LED-Backlight/183780952648?hash=item2aca32ca48:g:0W0AAOSwyhVcuj8j <https://www.ebay.com/itm/Medfusion-3500-Syringe-Pump-Fiber-Optic-Dual-LED-Backlight/183780952648?hash=item2aca32ca48:g:0W0AAOSwyhVcuj8j>

I have been led to believe they can be as thin as the EL panel. https://www.lumitex.com/fiber-optic-panels <https://www.lumitex.com/fiber-optic-panels> might be able to provide a sample to try it out.
