Neon Interior Lighting Question

Well CCFL Lighting, same thing, anyways my question to anyone is: How am I going to be able to install about 4 neon or CCFL lights and have them use one switch. Also which power supply can I use, other than the cigarette lighter that will support 4 lights or more? Thanks, I'll reply if anyone needs clarificaiton to help me out

use a main line to the battery through the firewall. You just need a switch that can handle the electrical load that's all. So get a good switch instead of a shitty one.

I am horrible at electrical crap, so you're saying I should run my own line from the battery and through the firewall, or there is already one present?

get some 16 gauge wire or so. Get an inline fuse set up, set the inline fuse close to the battery and run the line through the firewall underneath the drivers side dash. Get a switch that can handle the power instead of the cheaper switches usually used. Also, when you get the bulbs, make sure you dont trim off the chip that allows the neon to work ;-) Also make sure you use a fuse that's big enough too.

Thanks: To everyone that take time to run this site and NewCelica.org
Random: These cars cost a lot more then their sticker price. I feel the modding will never end.
