for the interior lights should look good

They really look good. The roof light is a little dull though, but that was a green coloured glass festoone light.

alrite well im confused, because normally you have a swtch which allows the current on the POSITIVE LINE??

you would have:

Pos Neg - bat
pos - door - neons-
neg - neons?

THanks, sorry the diagram is crappy, im at school and dont have access to posting images onto my website so that i could show you, but ill have that all setup tonight so it wont be a problem next time!

Ok cool. It is a positive wire that goes from neon to door sensor? Or doesnt it matter?

So negative from neon to battery. And positive from neon to battery via the door sensor. Thats cool.

It doesent really matter wether the swith is connected to the positive or negative side of the battery, because you are stopping the flow of electrons either way.

An even better idea using your existing interior lights, is getting a 5 LED bulb that plugs straight into the existing socket, look alot better and is much brighter

run a fused positive wire straight to the positive wire on your neons.
then connect the negative of your neons to the wire that is at the door switch (assuming it switches negative).
