Default Cold Cathodes (Switch pics page 2)

Well, they are installed. I haven't cleaned everything up yet, so there are still wires hanging down, and I don't have a switch properly mounted yet. But here it is:





So this is the start of the project. Before you know it, I might be able to light things up better than firedevil It might be awhile

Just hope you don't drop a bottle of Mountain Dew on the floor, cause it'll be lost forever...

Seriously though, i like it

Thanks for the compliments. That is one of the only pictures (out of about 10) that turned out decent. I now know that it is REALLY hard to take pics of the glow. In real life, it pretty much lights up the entire front half of the passenger compartment, as well as a bit of the rear.

By the way, Brad, the front of your car ROCKS! It looks so clean.

How much did they cost you, where did you get them, and cost of the project? Difficulty of the wiring?
