    I have made a LED mini marquee system and want to share.

    please take a look at my video showing the install.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gsU03RMnzms

    I have worked on this for a while and I am sure I have everything in the final stages. The only part is the actual panels and I am 3d printing them at the moment so they take a while to print, but until I know I need a large quantity it would be hard to get them made.

    I am looking for some help testing this in a 2 or 4 slot cabinet, ideally in the uk or europe so can anyone help me out, I would send you a kit free if you can.

    [update] So far I have measurements from a 6 slot (5.5mm) , 4 slot big red (10mm) and a normal 4 slot with no speakers (3mm). the cabinets without speakers and just a normal marquee only have enough room for the EL panels so it means the front marquee will need to sit a little further forward than it does at the moment.

    yes I am planning to have them for sale. it just depends on how much interest I get to see if I should find someone to make the panels for me or carry on 3d printing them in small numbers. I have suppliers for the light guide plastics and have the led pcb design waiting to be made, I just need to be 100% sure the depth of my panel will work in all cabinets. I know if I went to a company and asked them to make the panel it would be thinner than I can 3d 3d print, but it would need to be made in a large number to get a good price and I dont want to commit at the moment.

    Nice looking. I may even be motivated to repair my 4 slot mini marquee with this solution.

    This is the day I brought it home (12/23/17)...

    I'm just now starting the restoration process. Two of the lights work but they're very dim (on the way out).

    Can't even access my own photo yet so here's a Flickr link: https://flic.kr/p/DvkRZD (sorry if that's against the site rules, I'll go read them now).

    I may be interested in a 4 slot version. Depending on the price, of course.

    Thanks for all interest, I have started to source parts to make 80 panels and this should be enough to get things moving in this early stage. I have a rough price of 10 per panel, the control board could be brought fully assembled ready to go or as a kit so price could vary, but wont be too much. Not sure what import fee's you will have on top.

    Awesome news! Seems like a good price, considering that they're custom made. Keep us updated on these! I'd love to know how much it would be for a 4 slot set with a pre-assembled control board shipped to California.

    I have two 2 slot Gold cabs that could use new panels - not sure if their setup is the same as a 2 slot Red cabinet or not. Would your 2 slot setup work with them do you know?
