QFR with no lights to backlit
« on: Tue, 23 June 2015, 22:39:56 »
I was wondering how hard it would be to take my QFR (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA0AJ34K6133&cm_re=quickfire_rapid-_-23-129-002-_-Product) and convert it to all backlit.

Very hard... The PCB doesn't have pads or support for LED's.
Buying more keycaps,
it really hacks my wallet,
but I must have them.

Definitely a ton more effort than it's worth
