Internally installed light does not illuminate through opaque or non-translucent clock and/or radio dial faces. Light upgrade intends to illuminate through small gaps between clock and/or radio dial faces and chassis edges. Some models allow for more back lighting than others. The light upgrade is a best effort internal bulb placement to maximize illumination given different manufacturer and model design constraints. Clock and/or radio dial faces are not drilled out to improve back illumination. Some backlight upgrades result in little or no improvement in clock and/or radio back lighting.
