Ah. Hmm. That's a good question about the lights not being installed. I have not gotten one of these boards yet myself (but here's crossing my fingers I have enough free, my next check) so I'm not 100% possitive on that one. I've been looking into them quite extensively though. If you go to the mainpage (www.deckkeyboards.com
) and choose Products at the top, then choose Casings. This will show you the replacement covers that are available. They go for about $15 each I believe. It looks like the black one is the only one that does not allow light to shine through it.
