Question about Cobra 29 WX NW ST 40-Channels Base CB Radio
I`ve got a new cobra 29 LTD classic, I would really like to replace both the lcd channel display, and the meter light to a different color. Have quite a bit of backgroung in auto wiring repair. Is there any info on this procedure that you know of, or is it pretty straight forward.
I`d take it to a shop, but there`s none local, I`d have to ship, heard too many horror storys
Hello, the channel display is kind of touchy, as far as getting to it and of course it is soldered to a small circuit board and there is a certain way it goes back in. There is about 9 legs on top and 9 on the bottom that need to be unsoldered and resoldered( carefully). You can buy them in red,green, and bue. The meter light is pretty straight forward. You have a hot and ground wire. I used to use colored LED lights in the meters, way cool. They are not hot, and they last almost forever. The LED's are fairly easy because if you hook it up backwards, it just won't do anything. Let me know if you feel comfortable doing the solder work, and take a look inside the bottom cover at the channel selector because it has to come out with the channel readout. I used to charge $25.00 just for that because it would take me an hour just for the ch. selector, and about 15 min. for the meter light. Let me know one way or the other,,, Mechanic
