    Ok guys I scored a Cobra 29 nighthawk
    This thing has backlight just like the elite 78 from uniden
    Is there a way I can change the color
    Or maybe add led powered behind it it's half gone

    I've seen color change mods on the line for the nighthawk. That's a cool find.

    Easiest way is to buy the little bulb covers. Your choice of color. I have put LED's in one it was a pain. And you have to use the flat tip LED's. They are the 3mm size.
