My underbody neon kit

It's in. I've installed it. The switch it came with was bad and one of the short tubes. I sent an e-mail to the dealer and haven't received anything back yet. I'll have pics up soon when it goes dark here, in about an hour. But the install was a #####. 7 hour install. If anyone else needs help installing this, let me know, I found the optimum mounting spots and good wire routes. I don't want anyone else to go through what I did putting one of these on. I would write a how-to, but I didn't take photo's while I was doing it.

Ok. I don't have pics of the during, but I don't think they are really necessary for this particular install. I'll take some pics of the mountings and and the wirings, then put some labels in them. It's not too hard once you know what you are doing. By the way, my how-to will work for the generics sell2all sells and the streetglow brand. I don't know about the other brands. I'll try to have it ready by this time next week. If your looking to buy soon, I suggest the ones sold by Sell2All on E-bay. That's what I have and the quality is impressive, better than streetglow in my opinion. Plus the $80 (44 + shipping) is a much better price than the retail $250. Read each auction carefully, some of the models are different. You want about 48" for the 2 long tubes and at least 36" for the short tubes. Later

All the junk out of the box, note my cigar box.


Another out of the box

Well, I know what you mean, this wasn't my inteded order of mods, but when I saw the deal at e-bay, I couldn't pass it up. But when I get my duals, and Saleen bumper it will look sweet. And if you heard and saw my current sound setup, I think you'd be impressed. Great headunit, 12 cd changer, 20gb mp3 player, satelite radio and a 10" that USED to rattle everything on my car. Eventually my car will be a show car, but for now your right, it's just a wannabe. But I must say it's one damn sexy wannabe.

If they were a good deal that could not be passed up that is understandable.

Drop top... Do I see a box of Macanudo Maduro Cigars in that first picture ? I like those I also like the Macanudo Robust 8) . How many of those things did you light up when you were doing this install?

jsut to let ya guys know... Cops just love it when they catch kids with Blue or Red neons/leds/ect. anywhere on there car...

even around here in indiana underbody neons are legal if you cant see the tubes... but Blue or Red is a No No... theyll get you for impersonating a emergency vehicle... well at least one of my buddies got hit with that --- he had red neons under and inside his Red stang...

do what you want though

They can bust, just takes pressure instead of shock. They are some models that are brighter. BUT, from what I've seen and heard, the colors and overall look aren't yet on par with neon.

if youre gonna go with neone they now make any color led under car lights. each rod has red,green and blue led's in them so you can select any color from the spectrum you choose or have them rotate colors(like a rainbow). i saw it on a pt cruiser at a car show i thought the rainbow mode was gay but shyt theyre only 300 off ebay for the whole kit.i have red streetglows gold series under my car and i love them. pull into a parking lot, turn them on and people flock to your ride thinking its the shyt. i butsed them tho going over some railroad tracks at 112(limiter so i dont kill myself) and busted the side bulbs when i landed. smoked a integra gsr tho was worth it, he cried and handed me a bill.

*Manical laughter* HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA I just opened up the box that should have had my replacement, short front tube. Instead I got a brand new kit. I rule!!!!! I think I may run the extra's inside my car or just store them as replacements. Soooooo sweet. Just thought I'd share that.
