I'm wanting to know whether I would be able to wire up four 8" neon tubes off of the one power feed that powers the current boot light.

If not, I've got a main power line in the boot so mains power is not a problem, but how do I wire up the neons so that they turn on when the lid open and off when it closes?

I wouldn't run the power off the boot light, I would however run a relay off it.

Get the boot light to trigger the stable power for the neonz br0.

lol... thanks. I know neons are gay and all but I like them. However, I draw the line at having them in my boot!

I've currently got one neon hooked directly to the boot light power and it runs perfectly. Nice and bright.

I guess my next question is, which wire, the -ve or +ve, is the trigger wire?

I'm assuming it's the -ve.
