Neon tube behind center console questions...

I had a couple quick questions regarding this method of lighting up your center console using a neon tube.

https://www.celicahobby.com/ubbthreads/thread.f_1869870766_0_collapsed_5__1.html

1- After cutting the black piece mentioned, does the tube just fit in there without using anything else to support it (glue, tape, etc)?

2- What do you do with the preexisting lights attached to the AC console? Cut off the green slips? Leave them on?

3- What is the easiest way to change the cigarette lighter to match the neon? I tried acetate and it isn't even close. Is there any blue bulb out there that I can replace it with or is it like the AC lights which can't be removed?

Thanks in advance! smile

changing the light in the cig lighter is easy. just get your hands on a small led light, and cut out the one thats in there, and wire up the new one. mines blue now!

You can actually replace the stock bulb in the cigarret lighter for a led bulb #74 happywink

Thanks for your help guys. Does anyone know about how the tube stays in place or what I should do about the preexisting bulbs? Thanks again.
