    Does anyone know of a factory-black cf-29? I am looking at a CF-29 that has a black lid and handle; appears to be factory. The only thing that I am able to find is the "Blackhawk" but that has what appears to be a rubber bumper on the lid and is aftermarket (I think).
    Thanks

    There was a factory built cf-28 that was black, but I don't recall reading or hearing about a black cf-29.

    WHAT? No... Only the 27's were black.

    There is NO SUCH THING AS A FACTORY CF-29! This clown probably painted it!

    As discussed a million times, we would stay away from this, ESPECIALLY if used in outside in the SUN because of the heat issues!

    Thanks

    Is it possible that it was a "military-spec" unit? My interest in this one is that I know a "clown" did not own it and the source does not do any of their own mods. I am trying to get the full model # but may not be able to. Curious.............

    I was hoping that you would chime in TopCop as I knew there was someone in the group who could tell me the config with the model #. I'm trying to get the guy to get me the full model # (I'm dealing with him on the phone) and he has yet to get back to me with it. I'll post it as soon as/if I get it.
    Thanks

    That is precisely why I have not just gone out and bought this machine; I wanted the input of the many in this group who have "been there-done that".
    Thanks

    I downloaded and zoomed in on the pic... it looks like the "Panasonic" and the "Toughbook" emblems are gone so I'd guess a backyard paint job; not that I have anything against backyard painting (hides his purple and yellow lid).

    I could be wrong but IMHO it is a after market paint job.

    Why I say this is that the bezel or face of the lid is still silver. I would think that if it was done in the factory for some sort of spec ops it would be all black.

    Again just my 2 cents.

    BTW I see nothing wrong with the back yard paintingI have done a purple one and a lime green one and my girls thought they where cool, and make them look new again. I also did a camo dip for my nephew and he thought it was the bomb. Might do a pink camo dip of a cf-30 for one of my other daughters too.

    I am guessing it's a SBC. The seller took the logo off and tried to cover up the beating it took :) with the black paint. Frank , did the seller say it had a touch screen?
