Accessing the status LEDs

I'm working on a project in which the VESC will be mounted inside the machine such that the status LEDs can't be seen. I would like to mount my own LEDs on the outside of the machine. Is there a way I can connect my external LEDs to access and display the same information the LEDs on the VESC show? Thanks!

If you are skilled, you can solder thin wires to the SMD pads and take off the LEDs on the PCB.

You could also ad fiber optic cable to make the LED visible on the outside of a housing.

Or connect a rapberry PI with Linux and run VESC-Tool on a small screen.

The mobile App can display faults....
