Default Ignition swtich light

Okay, So I got bored the other day and switched out every interior light( i.e. dome lights, floor lights, map lights....) in the car to red bulbs to match the already red/orange dash and instraments.
Now here is the kicker, I go out to my car once it gets dark thinking about how cool this going to look and what do I see? The one light I forgott about and that now sticks out like a stripper in church. The little lit up ring around the ignition is still that stupid stock bulb. How hard is it, and what is the easiest way to get to this bulb?

of course.... This is the first mod I have done to it, just bought it in july and then found this forum. Just like many of others have said, I got itchy from sitting hear and reading so I opened up my wallet and all I had was 20 bucks. But, never fear, i still found something to do and tinker with!
