    Default Installing Interior Neons (alot harder then expected)

    So today my friend and I wired 2 12inch blue neon lights I hate the cigerate lighter ******** as if you have them plugged in it looks rediculouly ugly therefore i wanted them cleanly installed.. expecting a one our job, was pure stupidity. it took about 4 hours as it was also a learning expieriences and we were easily distracted. To do this cost about 6 dollars, Wire, Switch and electrical tape. (and the cost of neons)

    we placed them just about where the drivers and passengers feet would be, just so u cant see the tube and its as if the light is coming from an unknow sournce. Also wired them to a Switch.

    if wanted i can give good instructions on how to do this.

    THe blue is a sweeet contrast with the orangish of out interiors.

    This pic does not do it justice what so ever.(from camera phone)

    Cheers

    I am waiting to install 'cold cathodes' as well. I bought a set of two 18" sticks for just $12 with inverter. I was thinking to hook them up in the footwell as 'courteousy' lights and illuminate when the interior lights do (like when doors open). Haven't gotten around to finding WHERE to tap yet though.

    Why? Why turn a piece of art into a huge pile of shhhhhhh... crap on wheels? BMWs aren't meant to be eaten out of a wok bowl. Where's your dignity? Jeeez!

    Surely red would go better guys... surely red. I think I'd just use clears... blue is way to frikkin bling. Maybe in a Chrysler yoghurt carton blue tubes would be an improvement to the interior lighting, but not an e34, it already has lights in most of the right places...
