Front panels

Well I've had a good look at the section marked 'Display'

It looks like the same row of 37 lamps is repeated on  a number of sub 
panels with up to four rows on a panel.
The lamps look to be pushed through from behind and held every so often 
with a chrome screw from the front.

The photo of the lower half shows four sub panels

     CO        4 ROWS
     OU        1 ROW
     DU        2 ROWS
     APU      1 ROW

That might be do-able
