So you only used those 2 LEDs in the middle and you get that kind of light spread with the plate on?

Yes, only the 2 lights. It spreads because the light reflects off the plate.

I bought the same plate on ebay and got a great price by making them a offer ! Saved $10.00!
I ordered my leds from the same place Tony did. I wanted the ice blue look like my RS package has. Only thing is you have to buy your own resistors. If you want a standard red blue green yellow you can buy those at radio shack ready to install . I'll post my pics by the weekend .

Where did you get the "ice blue" lights?

And why do you need a resistor? I'm not good at electrical stuff lol
