Well, my StreetGlow neons had thin wires, so I wired them all up to much switch. I have two tubes under the dash. Do it like the switch says. One wire to the battery, one wire to a chasis ground, and one to the power on the neon. It's real easy.

yeah, cut that cig lighter adapter off and strip the wires. One wire on your neon will need a 12 volt source, the other wires needs to be grounded. If the switch has 3 prongs on the back side of it, then connect the positive wire from the neons to the "acc" (accessory) prong, then give the switch a 12 volt source from somewhere, and ground everything correctly.

Where is an easy 12 volt access under the dash? The key word is easy!
