Ok a very simple question about lighting for a pump. I am planning on wiring up my pump (Tokheim 300) so the lights work to display the face of the computer and the globe. I wondered if CFL (compact flourecent) would give a nice look? It would be a "brighter and whiter".

The second part of the question is what size bulbs are you using on your pumps? Regular bulbs sizes are OK. I imagine a globe needs the right size bulb to look good. Too big and the image would be washed out. Too small and you might be able to see it well. My globe is a repo with a plastic housing if that is important in your answer.

Let me know what works well for you.
