LED in the cupholder

So I've talked myself ut of a full length console swap, but now I want to at least add some LED to the short console, in the cupholders, I've seen it done, but not really sure, and I can't seem to find in an action picture, anyone got a close up of the LED installed,, think I'm just gonna go with a single green LEd I have lying around, (have quite a few), then I'm gonna just gonna get an LED holder, and seal it up pretty good, with a green LED on position rocker on the side, and use the rubber inserts if its off and nothing's there.

What does everyone think?

How about putting them in the bottom and dropping a piece of lexan over it? You could put a little clear silicone around the edge to make it easy to clean.

EL wires are waterproof. Just a dab if silicone where they enter the cup holder seals the cup holder from spills.
Since they are not on the bottom of the holder it really doesnt matter. 5 yrs or so and no problems.
