Yeah, that's not the most elegant solution to LED placement. Since it has an aftermarket head unit, and has more than likely bypassed the stock fader switch, a simple factory blank switch plug could be placed there with the LED poking up from the center.
Other than that, it's a pretty decent looking car, but still too much $
On my Vanagon I mounted the door lock LED so that it pokes up through the top of the dash. When it's blinking at night it reflects off of the windshield, lighting up the whole front interior of the vehicle.
