interior neons

I got my cold cathode tubes I ordered last week, total cost was $12, or around there... two 12" tubes. Kit comes complete. I wasn't expecting a switch to be WITH the tubes, but there was one. I won't keep it... but it works for now. Anyway, I sat down, and started playing around with it, and decided I really want to just put them in my car. So I did some special cutting, and wiring, and ended up splicing the hot wire of the neons to the hot wire of my amplifier switch, and the negatives of the neons and switch to the same faceplate on the Mach 460.... held via a screw. Then, I plugged the 620 volt invertor into the wires, and plugged the male/female into each other, and fed the invertor through this little pathway to where the pedals are. Then, I plugged a tube in on the passenger side, was VERY hard to get to cooperate, but it works. They had sticky tabs on them, but I electrical taped their ends down too. My first tube is actually behind my gauges, against my firewall. Number two is on the passenger side in a similar location. I found out what 620 volts can do to a finger too... don't press the plug in from the tube into that invertor with A LOT of force... black mark on my finger, and burnt flesh say that's a bad idea... but it didn't hurt that badly... then, I fed the switch through the two parts that are your center console and the dash for now. I'll get around to cutting a hole and all that, but I want to get the ACTUAL switch I'm gonna stick with before I go that far. I will post pics up when I get the time, and the energy, and the clean car. I also have to post pics of the AC gauges and how they glow blue now.... all in due time. I think it looks good... my dad really liked it, hahaha.... anyway, yeah, took less than an hour.
