I didn't solder, no need for it.

I try and keep my modifications as easily dissembled as possible.

Any suggestions as to where to put em up the front? I've got em at the back, under the 2 front seats, but finding a good mounting spot in the front footwells where the tubes arent visible is proving a bit tough

I'll reply to your PM here. My neons are mounted directly behind the glovebox, you can feel a lip where you can stick it. Drivers side is on the steering column.
Also I would have tapped into the courtesy (door) lighting rather than acc.

Passengers, zip tie it to under the glove box.

Driver side drill a couple of holes in the plastic and zip tie it through those.

You may need a rod of wood or some dowel depending on how long your neon is (if shorter than the the gap between steering column)

Alrite thanks guys, I'll have a play around tomorrow with those ideas.
I've already wired them in with seperate switches, tapping into the cig lighter...I wanted seperate switches so it works well for me :)
