hood scoop neon

i was wondering if there was any easily accessable 12v wiring which i can splice into under the Hood. Preferably it would be a wire with a switch already wired into teh car such as the head lights.

I would wire it to a completly different switch than the headlights. Just cross it through the firewall and into the cig lighter or something.

I agree, I would tap the fuse box either inside or outside the cab and run a switch.

the problem with that is that i am not particuarly mechanically inclined so the more indepth you get, the less i will be able to do.

If you dont feel like doing it this is a pretty easy mod and you could just go to circuit city or best buy. Cause if you are really inclined the last thing you wanna do is go cutting your headlights and tinkering around with them.

Thats why "fuse tap", no cutting of wires to existing systems.


For example, you could tap your cig lighter fuse, run power to a switch, then run power to the neon via the rubber "gromet" in the fire wall (its right behind the battery). So now you can turn it on an off when the power is hot. Its very easy its how most of us have added all our lights and what not.

OK, your right stay away from your car because I just told you how to get through the fire wall and you still don't get it, or your not trying to. Its so easy its stupid I could do it for you in 20min with all the parts. NOOB!

How bout this. Don't get the neon in your Hood because it looks like some radioactive puke in your engine. Neons don't do anything but attract unwanted attention anyway.

I mean. Think about it. "Look at me, my car glows in wierd places!" The only things that are originally suspose to glow are Brake rotors, your header, and gauges. And guess what? they all glow [/color]ORANGE![/color]

I believe depending on brakes, and the speed your going, the friction will cause it to glow. If you look at some night videos in japan of them drifting, going in a straightaway, then into a corner, sometimes you see a glow emitting from the brakes. Enough friction = heat = energy = can produce light.

Anyone who has/is old enough and has taken your basic high school physics class knows that high enough heat produces light.

It's simple physics people.

Do you not comprehend what I am saying here? All your doing with your now pink neon is drawing power away from your electronics. And If you can't understand why brake rotors and headers glow red from heat, then I don't know why you attempt to moddify your car. All a car is, is physics acting upon each other. Learn to understand that and you'll see my point and understand whats going on in your car.

well i'm glad it worked out for you.

and ditto to the comment that not everyone is about performance and style is more important to some people (civics do exist for a reason--anyway).

did you set it up the way isaac's pics showed? it's worth looking into if you didn't.

and please don't take the actions of some of us as opinions from the rest of us. flaming is not very common here, despite what it seemed. thumbsup

and of course post count doesnt dictate intelligence--i hope no one assumes that. but it DOES dictate familiarity. (users with a higher post count are more likely to be familiar with the question--because most questions have already been asked a hundred times over).

of course someone with 0 posts could be much more intelligent than someone with 10,000 posts. but as a rule of thumb a higher post count does indicate that the user has probably seen the question--and more importantly the solution--to a particular question.

you're right though... intelligence is better conceptualized by one's profession or the amount of years/degrees one has. Care to compare?

ENOUGH ALREADY!!

geez, if you want to put intelligence on a scale, then of course education is the key player (schooling, degrees, experience, study)

however, we ALL know that some education cannot be put onto a scale and simply having the above doesnt necessarily mean one is smarter than the other.

but come on people, just drop it. i wish someone would close the thread.
