I agree that people shouldn't assume that you are stupid for putting lighting on your car. Some people slap the neon nearly on the side of the car and think it looks good. If you do neon right, it looks great but most dont do it right. It seems that is where the bad rap came from. Undercar neon is not for me, but I think I can appreciate a good neon job.
CrazyMatt, do you have any pics of your Purple cloud riding Focus?
