Default Looking for an opinion on a minor neon addition

Original question was: I'm considering adding a 3 inch neon right behind my grill emblem on my 95 SSEi. I was looking for opinions on what people thought of the idea one way or another. All comments and criticism welcome.

Continued from Handrumman'* thread:

Well....instead of going green......see if u can find a "gold" neon......don't know if they make such a thing....but u gotta lot of green going on already.....maybe try to switch it up a bit....JMO

The grill is already gold so I'd think gold behind the emblem wouldn't work.

As for the switching up, I've made alot of changes over the last couple weeks.. you'll see soon.

i would cut a piece of plastic to fit in behind the emblem and mount a small ammount of superbright LEDs on it, possibly even a single LED

i would go with green

Green is generally much brighter than yellow because there is a gas that glows green, but to get yellow they must filter it with the glass. This is what i did.
