This mod took about an hour to do and cost about $30 total, including shipping on the following items:

2 each Amber LED strips

1 each Red LED strip

T-Taps, corragated wire loom and 18 guage wire, 

Here are a few pictures of the install. I ran the wires from each strip up into the space between the inner and out lid to keep them out of the way and make for a nice clean install. I'll put a dab of silicone in those holes to seal them up. I drilled a 3/8 hole near the other loom as it exited the inner lid and ran my wires through that. After I fished the wires down through and into the seat area, I pushed a 3/8 plastic wire loom over the wires all the way down to protect this new harness. You see that coming out of the inner lid in the one photo.

I did find that the turn signals were on the two blue wires, the wires are identical in the loom. So it was just a matter of tapping and then connecting to the correct light strip. I bought a 5 wire trailer harness that I plan to wire in so that when I remove the trunk, I can always get this plugged back together very easily. I'll add a picture of the under seat wiring next time I'm under there.

Lights installed

Brake light, sorry for the bad picture. 
The strip is centered on the crease in the lid. it ends about a 1/2 inch in from the corner on both sides:
