Default Underbody neons going in.

I got the remote control wiring done some time ago and today because of the great weather Im installing the neons.
A few notes;
The front and rear are tough because the kit I have has 3 foot tubes front and rear. 2 foot ones would be better, theres not as much room to mount as I thought. I got them in but a bit higher than I wanted.
The sides are 4 feet long, could be a foot longer for my car? I wanted to mount an angle iron to help 'shadow' the neons but this is just too hard to mount. The surfaces are all un even and the best place for the tubes was just inside the bottom rocker panels. We'll see?

I have to loom the wiring back to the underhood area and tie it in the junction block I made. I should have some pics tonite

They're in and its still light out.
But I can tell already that I dont like the install The front tube is too low (behind the fogs) and the rear tube may have to go deeper underneeth but the spare tire takes up too much room?

I'll wait for dark to see what it looks like, pics to follow

Heres a couple of dusk shots, almost has a sureal look with my cameras flash off?


Here you can see a bit of neon out from behind the fog light. Got to get it higher?

Light through the foglight hole is probably the ground IMO....

Nice!! Steady hand too for an old fart.

Not very good, I have them moved in about 4" so its not too bad but if you get down on your hands and knees you can see them

I'm ok with the rear, could be more light though.
The front should go up but not enough to light the grill, its a bummer with this front end as its all skirted in and limited in install options?
