Quoted from Trish:
You got it, it lights up, but no letters. Should be part of the backglass, but the letters are not there nor look like they ever were. We took the back glass off and looked behind and in front. It is nothing taped to the glass and it is mirrored. Evan states it is original backglass with no modifications. Was just wondering if I bought a very rare version (ok, wishful thinking lol).
I assume my answer to getting these letters is find an original backglass to buy from someone. If i feel the need to have letters.
Thanks so much for the quick reply.
That's interesting....you could try finding a good pictures and make your own cardpaper cutouts of the letters and tape them to the section. The lights should be segregated so it only lights up the letters (via the wood on the lightbox).
Of course this would only work if the reason it doesn't light up is that it's all 'open'. If it is all 'dark', then it probably won't work as it isn't letting light through.
