Default LED Underbody by Street Glow

Has anyone seen (in person) the LED underbody kit made by Street Glow?

I was just surfing SG'* website and I saw it.... I'm thinking it would be brighter and probably last longer then their Gold Series Neon tubes.

Any thoughts?

Ya know... If you order the LED'* from www.digikey.com (A site I use often) and do the math yourself, put the LED'* inside clear tibing and use electrical pipe clamps to hold it on, You could do it quite cheaply....

only thing you have to keep in mind is when you put led on instead of neon you have to aim it correctly. Do not aim it straight at the ground you have to aim it out at an angle so that they shine across the ground around you.

Hrm.... some good points....

The LEDs are brighter, and will probably last longer.
But they are harder to setup correctly.

The neon'* are easy to setup, aren't are bright, and may not last as long.

(I'm thinking that neon tubes won't last as long as LEDs)

Think of it this way too if the led tube gets bent or anything like that i would just break a few leds and would be no big deal but if u crack a convetional neon the whole thing goes out
