Yes, there is not that much space on the back seat, what I did is used a set of 2 for each front seat, putting a tube under the front of the seat and the back, so that it would have light on both sides, you will have most likely fabricate something to mount the tubes under the lip of the back seat, but I have found if you put them under the front seats shining back, it does pretty well.

Cold cathodes are a great alternative to traditional neons, they are cheaper, and usually brighter, and you can order ones with smaller casing.

Well after reading there lots of people have said the red look llike pink. So not sure what to do and I also have heard that they get really hot, which if I am putting them in the back might not be a good idea. Not sure what I will do yet.

most of my lights in my car are the cathodes, and I have never had a problem with them getting hot. color may be a problem (mine are blacklight so color doesn't really matter), but if you are really worried about the color you can always do led strips or something, or just go neon from somewhere else, but I think cathodes are the best deal on lighting from what I could find.

Yea I might go with led strips they are a good price and easy to work with I think. BTW my front two are streetglow. But last I checked they are pricey.

I think thats what I might use, I had some installed by a guy before. He has them hooked up to a switch under the dash. So i gotta take alook and see how he did it. If I am correct all street glow come with the cig plug in, so that will have to be cut off I think right? Maybe I can just wire the back ones with the switch in the front. I am going to be doing this in the next few days so any last hints or suggestions would be great. Wish me luck!!!

Well looks like the 9 dollar led I got is not bright enough so I will have to get a good pair of neons to put in the trunk down the road!
