I wanna do something like that myself this summer, only I plan on plain ol' white, just to be safe.

Looks great! I always figured PC lights would work. Thanks for proving it for me.

yah cold cathodes are tons cheaper than neons but the drawbacks are the wires are short to the transformer and if you extend them they go dim and they break easier. if you can get past those two obsticles then they work awesome. nice work.

Are you asking for an additional picture at a lower angle?

Ok, here are more pics of the grill lights.












The previous shots are where I was sitting on the ground, as you can see if I get too low you can see the lights behind the grill.




This is a nice shot I think.


You know what these two side shots remind me of.... have you ever seen the Disney movie "The Black Hole"? I have it on DVD, well in it there'* a robot called Maximilian, and his eyes look just like these side shots, so similiar it'* eerie. His glow red though. So now I have a name for my car... Maximilian or Max for short. :wink2:
