Good news guys... this project is almost done
-tubes mounted (done)
-wires spliced and wired properly (done)
-wires attached to ground and switch (done)
-switch mounted (going to be done as soon as I get a 3/4 in. drill bit)
I was driving around with the lights on tonight and I do have to say that they look awesome. Thanks for the help guys!
The red gauges and red neon look very good together... my only problem is that it is hard to see outside the sideview mirror because the red light glares off of the windows... oh well it looks great anyways!
