Thanks. I'm still confused at what you mean when you say ," wired to a hot, and then a ground"
I'm assuming you're talking about the battery? How would I get the wires to run throughout my car all the way to the battery under the hood? Or is this all flying over my head?

I've also heard people talk about being able to set them up, so that when i hit the unlock button on my clicker, the neons light up as well as the headlights would. That sounds awesome...and like I said, I just don't know how it would happen.

I might just put the LED door handle idea aside for now, and work on the interior. Im thinking the 4 1/2" strips (one on each of the inside red strip on the door) and then two 9" strips ( one under passenger side, one under driver side)

And the air vents....but I can't even imagine how to do the air vents.

Check with your local law enforcement as well. Any lights on the outside (and even some colors inside) a vehicle here in Minnesota is illegal. I am not one of those cop haters, BUT most cops can and will pull you over for something trivial. Who wants the hassle?

your "hot wire" is simply that, its a power source. either directly hooked to the battery(which i dont reccomend) or to another live wire. The ground simply completes the circuit> so you can connect this to any bolt on a metal surface. yeah man once you start you cant stop. around here they call it "the bug." LOL

I kow best buy seems like a weird place to have them installed. He was fixing my 12'*, I blew one of them. I was talking to him about how I was going to mod it up a little bit, I mentioned LED'* under the dash, he said, "yeah, just swing on by, i can get you hooked up"....and he said something about getting paid by the half hour? or something...

I just don't know where else to go guys. I don't have ANY car experience, AT ALL. Lol, not to sound like a spoiled brat, but I LOVE all the nice comments i get from people about my system and how nice the bonnie is. And I know I can take my baby so much further...

Someone mentioned why I don't just go to a custom car shop? The truth is, I don't even know if there is one in my town (Springfield). I will look around though.

And I have another HUGE question, but didnt feel like starting a new thread. Will blue angel eyes fit on my 2000 bonnie? and where can i get these installed?

Sorry I have so many questions, I just want to mod the **** out of my bonnie now.
