    Have a Dentron MT-3000A - The meters on these are not lit, so in a dim room it makes it hard to tune without a flashlight or some other. I have tried bright leds all around the back side of the meters with no luck of any real light getting through, and can't mount lamps on the sides as the meters are mounted from the front.

    Has anyone successfully drilled 1 or 2 small holes in the lower right & left corners behind the meter covers to add lamps or leds ?

    Success or disaster info welcome.
