RGB arcade button hack

This is just a small hack, but still took me a weekend to solder 16 of them.
I wanted some new LED arcade button for my machine, but could only find single colour ones.
Soooo I bought a bunch of white ones and removed the existing LED and replaced it with RGBs. Sounds simple enough, but as the buttons were designed to house a single colour LED it only had 2 outputs when the new LEDs needed 4.

More to come
