Yaesu VX-8 LED mod

Many people ask me about the size of the led's i've used.
The display needs 3 LED's 1206 size mounted on an angle.
The keyboard needs 10 pieces of 0603 LED's size.
I am going to make a video on removing and re soldering a led with a simple soldering iron for those of you asking me by mail.
Would be great if you could spend some time and click on some ads, since i'm out of cash it would help a lot for my researches on the yaesu and other stuff. So far i've have had a few clicks tho lol.
In the mean time check the video of the VX-8 showing the color of the display and keyboard

Are you still going to do a video on how you did this? Curious mainly as to the technique you used and gear. Thanks.

I totally forgot this. Well i have no other VX-8 to do it but i probably can find something different to mod. I used a simple hot air station for the removal of the led's and a simple soldering iron for the new ones.
