Thanks, very much appreciated! Sorry for the delay in getting back to this post.

The resistor for the blue LED is 1.5k and I can't recall the value for the red one. It's on my schematic at home. Probably somewhere between 1-2k

Here's a photo of the faceplate on the original amp. I've since changed the trim on the metal grill to flat, 2.5 mm aluminum strips to better match, and changed the screws to what I call "gun metal finish" which is actually called "antique brass."

BTW, thanks for posting the link to the Matchless tour. That's inspiring!

Using Google Translate I worked out that the question was in Portugese, and says something along the lines of, "anybody done a light panel for marshall?"

Anyone want to comment?

Here's how Paul Ruby did it on his Miriam amp:
