Question Question for underbody neons

Okay, I finally bought a set of lights for my car. Those of you who have them, can you post a pic of the placement for them under the car? I have a general idea as far as where they go...but I would like to see what others have done to give them a discrete look. Thanks. Oh, I got white ones. Cant wait.

I put mine behind the little 1" sills that stick down........if you back up far enough, and get down low enough, you can see a bit of the tube though :(

My cardomain has some pics but not really of what you're looking to see.

Pretty much your only option right there.

Each car is different and the Intrepids weren't designed with underbodys in mind... though the lighting really isnt that bad. Your biggest problem is going to be hiding the wires. Newer cars tend to have fewer places to tuck wires.

Well, I should be getting them inthe mail this week (I hope)...as far as running wire, do you think it would be a wise/good choice to drill holes under the car and run the wires up and under the carpet? I figure that way I won't have the wires coming loose and getting snagged on anything. I can't wait to get them and put them on. Hopefully (crosses fingers and toes) this is one thing that will go smooth. And I should have my new black headlights coming this week as well.

I dont really have any good pictures of placement. I would go outside and take you some but we have differnt cars. The only thing I liked alot about my underglow install was by putting the front LED right under the black piece under your car. So when my car scarps on somthing then I know it didnt break/mess up my underglow.

Yeah once you get under your car with the tubes, you'll see that there's not many choices as to where to mount them. It'll be pretty obvious. And as previously stated, the lights themselves will be slightly visable at a low enough angle.
I'm thinking about buying some material (some kind of black plastic) and fabricating a little 1 1/2 inch "skirt" to mount next to the tubes to hide them.

Cool...thanks for the info guys. Ed...how did you run the wires? Did you under the main body or did you get creative with it? I personally think I am going to drill into the cab and run them under the carpet. UPS says they will be here friday...so Saturday will be install day along with another set of the black headlights.

My kit came with like a hundred zip tie strap mounts for the wiring. I just did the best I could running them up above and away from the suspension and any other moving parts, drilling small holes for the screws for the zip tie mounts. Most of the wiring went along the sides next to the tubes, and led them all back to the passenger side of the trunk. The "air baffle" thing (pull back the carpet on the passenger side of the trunk) makes an excellent passage from the underside of the car, to the inside of the trunk. No holes to cut! I'll try to get under there and take a few pics of the wiring route that I took.

I mounted my front one behind the black plastic air dam.........the rear one I mounted on a curved section by the rear bumper.
