BTW, where does a guy find the nice RED plastic lens that is usually put
in front of a bank of 7-segment displays to hide the view of the parts
and show only the lighted segments showing through?

Is it just red plexiglass or is there a specific color and transmissive
capability that is typically used?

I like playing with RED LEDs too and have a bunch of clocks and things
to build and want to put such a filter/lens in front of them.
