where you get your power from the neons
after following the instructions and countless trips to frys back and forth, i figured out the lighting and all that, but today, thanks to breakindrifts, found out that i blew a fuse, he suggested another power source, so any suggestions?

yea dude what kind of kit do you have? they all come with a fuse of some sort, if not goto autozone and pickup a 5A inline fuse,they're like maybe 3 bucks. Do it right the first time so you dont have a live wire and blow your car up

Well seems like people have been using the Inline fuses try that, or hook it up straight to the battery and use a switch for it. thumbsup

I missed that. frown Holly cow, that's like 20 amps. If it blew that, I agree, go direct to the battery. thumbsup
