I believe you are correct, now that I think about it. I was confused b/c the instructions showed a silver panel getting sanded down and a black panel getting the new stencils. So I thought the silver panel was under the black one, but I think it was an SVT and a non SVT (or modded to look like a non-SVT) and indeed - I guess instead of two layers and green LED's, this panel is white LED's and green paint with black paint over that.
I'm not planning to do the mod - it was more curiosity for me, but in the other threads I've read, people were buying from v-leds
, and you might also try superbrightLED's
