Great idea, and the red light ups the coolness factor.
Speaking of red lights. I have fluorescent cabin lights. I got some self-adhesive LED-strips. Stuck them next to the fluorescent tubes, exchanged the switch to a two way switch and soldered wires to the LEDs. Now I can have super-sexy red light to reduce glare, and not attract insects, or normal white light.

Total cost converted to $: $12 for the LEDs, and $2 for the switch.

The pic shows the light, with cover removed.
