Or it could be that overtime the light just faded (It's been sitting for 1.5 years).

Alright well if you really want to do it, all bull****ting aside, put them kind of closer into the center so that it's not overbearing at least.

One thing that IS kinda cool is mounting lights somewhere safe on the rear axle/front steering assembly as close to the rim as possible. Gives a neat effect on SOME cars, with some rims that will reflect the light. That and maybe in the grill, but other than that I wouldn't do it. Even the mods I talked about are pretty tasteless on most vehicles.

No. You should be fine.

I have no idea why you'd want to mess up your underbody or under dash with neon lights, but you'd have to install much much much more than just lighting to put enough drain on your altenator to keep it from charging your battery.

Also remember that LED lights draw much less current than regular incandescent lighting.

Install your lighting and enjoy your new found artificial daylight.

Hope this info helps.

You guys are harsh.

We've all done things to cars that others don't like - hell, half of the people on here that capped on the OP have cars that I think look like total crap.

Let the guy be himself and do what he wants to the car. Constructive critiquing is one thing, but the elitism here is just crazy.

Theres some unstated law about doing bad stuff to your cars only until you are 20 years old then you must stop.

Half the people replying to this thread don't realize that it's been two years and he went ahead and did it already.

I give you serious respect for your attitude. You like the way something looks and you don't care what other people think, that's the way you're meant to live. But I have to say I almost busted a gut when I found out you transferred them to the S197 and only one lit up. I think you should just toss 'em in the trash at this point, it might be long overdue

Please install the neon lights on the chassis of your Mustang! Please! I encourage everybody to install every stupid modification possible on their Mustangs!

Don't forget huge rear wings, bangin' stereos windshield banners and stickers.

I know from personal experience it will make your car STAND OUT from the crowd (especially when viewed from a police helicopter at 700 feet altitude).

I'm for anything that draws LEOs to your car and its dumbass modifications. I'll be sure to wave when I pass you at 90MPH when you're talking to a cop.

Relatively speaking, I'm pretty much against neons under a mustang...same with abnormally large wheels and such. But the attitude of this thread's replies is also pretty horrific. Good read nonetheless, made me giggle.
