Help Installing CCFL Footwell Neons

Uhm.. this kit just arrived in the mail (2 12" CCFL - Blue)
the 1's shown in the install guide seem to have came w\ a swithc to turn them off and on, mine didnt. So i was wondering if anyone has ever installed these and if i need to buy some extra to have these installed.

Just cut one of the two wires coming from the CC and put the switch in there. Like this...

-------------------\
------------------__\_
-----------------|------| << switch
-----------------|____|
===========[] []========= <========================== <
Sorry the image is ghetto lol im at work otherwise i would have drawn it for you

It doesn't matter which wire it is, the + or the - will be fine. then all you have to do is just ground the negative and hook the positve to a constant 12v power source like the cig lighter.

(the negative wire will be probably be silver in color, or the ruber casing around the wire will be just one color. the positive wire will be a coper color. and the casing for that will have some kind of colored stripe on it.)

You can get the switch at radio shack or someplace like that. Make sure it has two prongs on the underside of it.
