so i JUST got done helping Aku wire up some crazy glow....

6 12" cold cathodes...

2 4 chip superflux LEDs

4 LED rocker switches.....

onto the pics!


not the greatest shot of the backseat, but it gets the idea across


the front! omg glow!


view when sitting in the car... and your legs from about your knees down are totally lit up as well


drivers side


all 4 switches are on! (one controls the glow, the other three will be hooked up soon to other stuffs.)

comments, suggestions, etc. are welcome.

I need to take a picture of the switches in day light and post it up. the color of the switches matches the center console color perfectly and the switches look they could have been factory.

Just waiting on my headlights to return from snacky's place to take/post up all the exterior shots.

^^ what I<3 My ZX3 said.

Alignment hole right in the middle for the nub sticking out of the bottom of the rubber insert. Basically just drilled out that hole a bit and epoxied the LEDs in place.. I then had to cut a little hole in the rubber insert for the light to shine through.

I actually tested out a macdonalds cup in the cup holders. if you have a dark beverage like a dr.pepper or a coke it doesn't work that well but with a light soda like a mt.dew or a sprite or something the cups actually still light up a bit. not as bright as a clear waterbottle obviously but it does light up.

That setup looks sweet. I plan on putting some yellow neons in my ZX3. I just hope they look as good as your setup does. What brand neons are they?
