you notice the black squares that are there with the tubes.

They do the same thing as the florescent light ballasts. Bump the voltage. CCFL'* are basicly neons, which are basicly the same as florescent lights. They all need the ballasts/transformers.

i looked at hte ebay ones firstm but they were all too big, and i didnt want to spend all that $$ and have to bend them
you can't bent CCFL'* its like trying to bend a florescent light or straight neon tube. the tubes they use for the angel eyes is really small glass tubing.

Pat was lucky that he had a black strip across the top to hide the connections etc for his rings. Looks great though.
