Once you get to the board take of the red led
Connect one wire to the negative and one to the positive. Run the wire underneath the board to the other side where the switch will be. Run separate wires to each of the two leds.
When you hook up the wire to the switch hook all the negative wires to the center peg on the switch. Run two wires one from each side of the switch so when you flip the switch one light will come on and the other will go off.
When you have done that run the leds back over to the front and fix them to where they can both shine through good i used electrical tape
