Quoted from chaskett:
hayrebear did you use comet 89s or cointaker 89s? Cointaker has direct replacement 1251 LEDs that are plug and play and look great... wondering if their 89s are the same or if the resistor mod is still needed.
I would like to personally thank you Chaskett! Followed the advice you posted, lamp scheme etc. Started switching our Pinbot over to led this evening and we started with the back box. We have the glass translight and I can tell you it's night and day better!
