Upgrading to LED

K I need a help here. I am doing a rebuild on my Aqueon columns hood. I am installing ecoxitic panorama pro and 2 stunner strips. I took out the T5 that was built in but what do I do with the switch? Should I just cut the wires? I'd hate to have a hole on the top of the hood.

just unplug the wires from it, they should just slide off. since there's no power going to them, there wont be a problem.

Can I reuse this as a splash guard for the ecoxotics? Or do I have to try and make one out of clean acrylic? I suck at cutting acrylic.

This is the thing in wondering if I should get rid of. The part with all the diamond peek things.
