Cold Cathodes

Can anybody tell me where I can buy some cold cathodes? Are they hard to install? I ran a search but all I could find was pictures.

yea i bought all my cold cathodes from svc.

this shows how to put htem in

https://www.celicahobby.com/ubbthreads/thread.f_1869836811_0_collapsed_2__1.html

I have 2 12"ers in frtont footwells, 2 4"ers in the back seat, and 1 4"er behind my ac gauges. now the only issue witht hem is becsaue they are made for PC the switch is pci slot switch, not the black toggle that shown in the pic. So if you see in my profile i bought some fighter switches and put them next to my shifter smile

Ok, thanks guys thumbsup. On the site, the only 6" CCFL tubes I can find are the purple ones. Do they not make red ones?

if this is for the ac gauges jsut use 4" they are a tad bigger on the ends then neon. i hear though, that red is kinda light and almsot looks pink with cold cathodes. to fix it you can use a bit of red celophane over it to make it more red thumbsup
