I then epoxyed the LED to the back underside of the compartment with the LED centered in the hole. Let the epoxy dry, then reassemble the hole thing. Not too bad. No there is a nice orange glow into the compartment.
I know I may regret admitting this but I was actually trying to disassemble the lighter itself to remove it vs. simply unplugging that white plug. What a dumbass. Anyway, what type of rewiring did you have to do to get this to work...There were actually two LED lights left from the old piece.....did you just want to use one?
