Default Passenger Side Window Switch Illumination

So after lots of searching I found... nothing. I am interested in modding the passenger side window control switch in my 2002 Impreza so that it illuminates red. I have seen the old Lightwerkz Thread that offered

I sent a PM to ProDriven Auto, but they are not able to offer this service.

I also found this thread by soccermom that mentions something about illuminating the passenger side switch, but never follows up.

So does any one have an info, or hopefully a link to a DIY thread about how to do this mod? Or, possibly even better, does anyone know if another MY or even model Subaru is compatible and already illuminated?

I also really want to do this mod if I could. It would really complete the 'red light look' inside the car. I've converted everything else to red already!

I think prodriven did mine. Basically all you do is cut a opening for the light to pass through(currently its white paint). Make it so its clear. Open the switch and add a led inside the switch, smaller the better. Then use the connection for power mirror for light.

Problem is since their is no illumination cable the light will always be on. I don't really care at least my passenger can see the switch now, but might be bigger deal to others.

Does anyone know which wires on the passengers' window switches harnesses provide +12v and negative?
