hardwire

you will have to hardwire the stuff from a spare wire behind the dash... you'll prolly have to dig around. or you can get a kit at local car store for a foglights switch. get that, hook it up and then you have the switch casing inside the car ready for the 12v hook up. then you can hook the neons/strobes from there.

I installed a 20in red neon light in the back kinda under the edge of the rear seats. I ran one wire to the rear seat back and grounded it on the amp. The other wire i ran under the plastic door sill. Then i ran it into a fuse that is a constant power source. After that i ran another wire up from the hood release and put in a switch to turn the light on. It was real easy to do. If you have any questions just let me know.

The switch is just a black toggle switch, about 1in long. It was less then a dollar at a home depot. The switch is on the driver side, on the panel that slants down from the steering wheel. It is in line with the hood release latch. You cant see it without peering down there. Hope that helps a bit!

Personally, I don't like neon lights. I think they cheapen the look of a car that already looks awesome just on it's own. You should leave that stuff for the Honda Civics :)

This is'nt neon,it's electroluminescent - like INDIGLO.Runs directly off 12vdc and runs cool.
