Default Neon lit grill!

I've had quite a few PMs asking about my neons so I figure I might as well start a thread.
I made it quite easily, I took two 10 inch neons and zip tied them up. For power I spliced into the stock fog light power and ground so they would be controlled by the fog light switch. I'm sure there are ways to make it more professional looking.
Here'* a few pics of how they are mounted.

weh have the pillar in the middle anyway, it would just block the light.

I'd like to do that, but I'd rather have a blue light, which would be hard to find :(

looks awsome... lets see some night pics

You can check out Ebay, LITE GLOW, STREETGLOW, EUROLITE & varads website. The only problem is having it on & not getting harrased by the cops.

Smellbird, quick question, how did you hook it to the fog lights? As in where are the wires to do so. This seems a lot easier than running a switch, or unplugging fuse all the time(what i do right now).
