i currently have an EL fairmont and looking to get that blue glow from under my dash that everyone seems to what. Just curious if anyone has an info on which would be better to use out of neons or cold cathode fluros?

Another problem im facing is where to mount the lights on the front passanger side. It seems there are a few obsructions that limit where ya can mount things from. Just curious to where everyone else mounts them?

From my exerience the ccfl tubes actually have a brighter output than neon tubes. They are also thinner.
