The '96+ analog IPC uses this kind of light bulbs:

Total 6 bulbs. On the green socket it says: 7E and WAGNER
I guess you can take 194 light bulbs and mount them on the green socket (involves soldering).
To replace the bulbs you need to take the IPC out, open it up (about 6 screws) and split it in half (there are 2 PCB, one in the back and one in front - the one with the gages and the display). The light bulbs screw in the back of the plastic casing of the front PCB. There is a banner cable connecting the front and the rear PCB in a sandwich configuration. You need to disconnect that.
Then again this is in the '96+ analog IPCs, not sure on the older models.

IDK your running speaker wire to the trunk within the route of the panel, i would like to suggest taking an easier route (if you have fishtape).

Run some fish tape from center console under carpet, under rear seats to the trunk, then use electrical tape to attach the 2 piece of wiring to the fishtape then pull it back to the console and keep pulling slack so you have enough to run to both doors, IDK what your plans are for this removal like i said, but if this is the reason.. this is your conclusion here.
