    Darn, those lighting configs make me almost wish I'd waited to order my G73! Almost. Definitely looking forward to a step-by-step mod guide! :D

    Here is the simple guide to mod the keyboard backlight for G73/G51/G53:

    1: buy the colored film, it can be found at your local gift shop, mine cost only $3.99 per roll which is very cheap not even $4.

    2: lift the KB up and disconnect the backlight cable and ribbon cable of the KB:

    3: remove the two screws on the aluminum foil:

    4: lift the aluminum foil up:

    5: cut the colored film and place between the KB and aluminum foil:

    That's it. of course you can cut the different colors to mix it.

    You can always start practicing by cutting out squares of cellophane .. That should keep you busy for awhile ;)...

    Thanks for the photos Ken!
    The JW also has the exact same keyboard with white backlight as the JH right?

    Can you tell what wifi card was shipped with your JW? Is it the 6300 or something else? Thanks.
