ya so this is not the most stealth installation that could have been had....so i take a look over at the SEM Tan paint.....and the ideas are flowing

remove the neons from the car, and tape them up

i am VERY happy with the results, the camera makes the paint seem a little lighter because of the flash...i can tell you that they match very closely.....makes the tubes less obvious in the day, which is what i wanted

nice fix, very nice...but now the tubes look "ghey" and could be mistaken for grab bars (well the ones on the side anyway)
