ehy guys i am becoming an official ford rice man. i am putting a neon in the boot so when you open it blue lighting appears.

oh yeah i nearly forgot. when i went to inspect the light already there i pulled it out, spark, blew the fuse. i found it weird that the fuse with radio didn't blow but the radio doesn't work.

any ideas.



PS i wasn't sure where to post this.

it'd be pretty easy to do, hardest part would be finding the best place to mount the neon so that you only see the glow and not the tube itself
