Whats the deal with installing interior neons, do i run them straight from my battery through a fuse? I have a EF GLi and i know the wiring is different from some other models? Do it take the same steps for installing exterior Neons?
Thanks.

Personally i think a feck-off huge monster tacho is 10 times more queer than some interior neons. Whenever i see someone with this bloody great dial shtuck to their dash, i immediately recognise that they have a small penis and their mother doesn't love them.

Have you considered using an LED kit?

http://www.ledshoponline.com/under_car_ ... ht_kit.htm

I'm sure you could adapt that to use inside the car. Much safer, much less rice because of the different technology involved, much less power consumption, much more colours.....

LEDs are just much better is so many ways!
