interior neon lighting
alright...so this place was selling 10" neons for 2.97 each so i decided i would do neons for the first time in any of my cars. well...since they were so cheap...i bought all the blue ones they had left. i have 7. i know i want to put 2 under the dash. what should i do with the other 5. also i know i dont want to see the bulb...i want indirect lighting. and i dont need to hear that neons are gay...i just want help and ideas please. thanks.

well you can put 2 under the dashboard on each side.
so your left with 4

now you can put 1 under the each seat , drives and passangers...

so your left with 2
now with those 2 if you really want too you can put them in the back where the stock backseat speakers go... one in each one...

best i can do.

Definitely under the seats. You can find places to hide them in the trunk also, maybe behind the two access panels.

AC panel allows only 6" max wave
Save the 7th as a spare thumbsup

I hope you won't have any problems putting them in the foot pedal area. My girlfriend always kicks the light off its place so I came up with some ghetto solution. I used paper clip to secure it in place rather than using velcro or double sided tape. grin who knows might help you... thumbsup

you should try wire ties or zip ties...probably a lot more effecient than a paperclip. grin who knows might help you... thumbsup

Im waiting for my neons to come in the mail, but what is a good location in the drivers footwell to secure the neons with zip ties? pics? i think on the passengers i can secure to some wires.

I can post a pic today. What made this such a pain was getting the wires throught the car, into the door and then down to the neons. It doesnt sound to hard, but believe me, its a lot of work. but it really does look good, with the door open and closed.


My car might be slow, but at least it looks nice!
