    I enjoyed your how-to on changing out the LED of the NES. I’m very new to modding and working on my first idea. I’m even less knowledgeable in the world of circuits and what not. What I want to do is change the stock power and reset buttons into toggle switches as well as change the LED power light and add LED to the system to light up various things. Basically – how would I do that? Can you make a DIY for something like this or point me to something similar? Thanks!
