I reckon it's not that different than any of the 360 mods out there. You need to find the appropriate voltage source on the internals, and then solder to it. It's a simple LED wiring mod, although it does look neat indeed (considering very few PS3 mods exist out there) I take it took some steady hands and alot of patience for the logo cutting and buttons. For the holes, a power drill is all. You can search tutorials on google, youtube, metacafe. Try searching for cutting plastic, 360 mods, etc. Like I said before, it's all very similar.

It seems like the light is coming from the outside of PS3 slim LOL
