Good price on DL connector w pins... black switches with fast-release, some colour caps for CUT lamps, 36v lamps or if anyone knows some good price leds, some green caps for the i.e dynamic knobs (the E green :)

2 center section cards for L/R Back, seems pretty hard to find

call them ask to speak to one of the "boffins" (Steve or Adam P) they have a good selection of centre section cards ( if they can be found!)

I am in the process of modifying all the 36V lamp for LED myself..it's a pretty tedious and LONG job but if you consider that the LED bulb cost about 7 each...then it's worth doing it while you are watching a DVD of a concert..  ;D

I have not tried the LEDs myself so I don't know how much they diffuse and if they look like the bulbs, but the LED (as I have them placed they diffuse fairly well and most of all do the job.
consumption is the same (20mA for lamp and 20mA for high luminosity LED) BUT they will never go wrong again and you can smash the SOLO or CUT button without worrying that the lamp would go..how about that?

I will write a topic on this and post pictures too so people can follow probably in few weeks, I am still too busy at the moment.
