I took your advice and it couldn't have worked more perfectly. I have attached images for everyone to see how simple this mod is and it matches the other red lights perfectly. Cost me $3Not really a solution to your issue...but I myself found the storage tray light very annoying. Especially since it is a white light. I took a piece of Red Taillight Repair Tape and placed over it. Now matches the other Red lighting on the dash.
Now if I could figure out how to do something about the white ambient light in the overhead console!!
