The LCD mod turned into a real comedy of errors.

I managed to dismantle the LCD several times. The LCD backlighting consisted of 30 SMD leds, when I tried to use normal blue LEDs I was able to light the display but it wasn't very even.
So I bought some new SMD blue LED's and spent an age (1 day) desoldering the green LEDs and soldering the blue LED's. It actually worked quite well for about 10seconds until one of the LED's blew, then the next and the next. Within 1 minute all LED's were dead.

OK it looked really nice for a short time but at 20Euro a shot it's abit expensive :)
