just a bit of an update on the LEDs in the display.
I did notice that the LEDs are a bit directional because of the lens on the end, and so produce a bright circle of about 1 inch dia on the display.cratch:
So, rather than put a blob of paint on as suggested, I stole one of SWMBO's nail emery boards , and gave the lens a gentle rubbing over. This creates a matte effect, and disperses the light more evenly over the display.
Result ! - except I owe my wife an emery board as I have nicked it for the car tool box.
Here is a pic of the original lens LED, with its modified brother.
