One thing I did that a purist might not agree with, I replaced almost every incandescent bulb with a new LED. In my view the benefits far outweigh the ever-so-slightly-reduced authenticity.
Benefits of LEDs:
- Bolder and more vivid colors
- Longer life
- Cooler burning
- Draw less power and therefore easier on the wiring and components in the lighting circuitry
- Instant-on/off for crisper animations
I also replaced the white bulbs in the space station ‘ring’ on the backglass with blue LEDs. Again, not authentic, but way cooler.
What do you think?
