Done it a bunch of times. I get my LEDs online but there are multiple places both online and brick and mortor to get the LEDs. The real key is figuring out the right resistance. For that you either need to be good with your electrical engineering formulas or find a "LED resistance calculator" using your prefered search engine.
I plug into my reciever and use the 6 volts from that. The actual lights can be shoo-goo'd into the body or mounted on a scrap of lexan in a position to shine through.
