Time to pop in some switches and wire it up! I decided to use the back lights on the cherry switches. I also liked the LED on the top of the instead of the bottom. So depending on who you ask they are upside down. But this is one is MINE and if I want it upside down... I'll have it upside down! ;)

Wiring the LEDs:

All LEDs working:

Off:

On:

The LEDs are cool. If I was doing this again I'd skip wiring them up. It's lot of work.
