for your neons most of the time i like to keep the glow and not show tons of tube everywhere (its ok to have some but you want most glow). second i like the neon string but yet i hate it because everytime i want to use it, it is never long enough to do the job. if you have steady neons i think its best to have them all steady or buy a box to make them all flash to make it consistant (just my idea tho). Under seats, shining down from under dash, shining on back panel and between seats shining on doors in the back are some good places to put neons. if you only have one strobe light have it in a centralized location and i dont really like strobes unless parked because its pretty distracting. if you want to talk more about this feel free. i would guess you spent around 50 or so if you bought the stuff on sale at a good price or if you are rich and bought street glow stuff at full price i would guess around 200.
