Default Modding a case, swapping out lights. (XION AXP 100 Gaming Series AXP100-001BK Black)

I am wanting to purchase this case:
Newegg.com - XION AXP 100 Gaming Series AXP100-001BK Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases

I am wanting to swap out all of the blue lights for purple. I am just wondering if anyone owns this case and knows if the blue lights in the door are accessible / swappable....

I am also wondering if the blue lights visible in the bottom grill are produced by the 120mm fan. or if the grill has lights in it as well.

thank you ^_^

I don't own this case, but I've done a lot of case modding so I feel like I carry some authority in this field

first off the door lights won't be hard to get it, it's just a matter of getting the new ones in. Generally on 'cheaper' cases like the one you want it's just a LED that's hot glued into a little plastic bracket.

The light on the bottom is most likely the fan. I've never seen a grill with lights in my days.

Peter's right. From the description it has a single blue fan you will have to replace, and then the LED(s) in the drive cover door.
