Pics with neons installed...finally

Well, as most of you know, I have been putting my underbody neons on. I am done and have pics. And most of you know that I suck at taking pictures, so bare with me on the suckiness, but you see how bright they are.

Notice the neon in the hoodscoop also

I was under the impression that blue neons were illegal...

If that's not the case, I may just have to get some. grin

Only if you have them on while you're in motion.

Parked, they're fine. thumbsup

Laws vary by location. Typically, if you are parked, you can have whatever type of lighting you want.. it's when you're driving that it becomes a problem.

Also, MOST colors [as opposed to only blue] are illegal to have on your car (with underbody neons, especially).

Ha ha, I had a friend that owned a WRX AWD Turbo, and he did a 4 wheel burnout at a stoplight when the cop was right next to him! It was hilarious!

Knowing the path and choosing the path are two different things.

truthfully that is more form than function; I don't think it would noticeably affect performance in daily driving.

The deal with the neon scoop.

I doubt that it cuts off any airflow, and if it does, its not enough to make a difference.

It is a 9" neon, and in the package came hardware for mounting the neon (comes in all pakcages). I held it where I wanted it to be, marked the holes, drilled them, then mounted the neon with the hardware. I then wired the neon to the switch I use with my underbodies. So when I flip my underbodies on, the hoodscoop comes on.

If you have any further questions, feel free to send me a PM or post them.

Yes. I just made sure not to go through the other side. If you look at your Hood, you will see what I am talking about.
