I picked up the following for the wife RS3. Great deal I thought. Im going to install them in the interior up on the ceiling. I couldnt find cathodes in 36 or 48 or 60 inch lengths and the price was too good to pass up. I found them on price grabber, but on the http://www.qualitycaraudio.com/store/viewitem.asp?idproduct=18114 they are listed at $62. The box was huge and peanuts out the a$$.


No orange for my RS1 but I ordered Red which looks orange from http://www.clubxb.com/forums/newthread.php?do=newthread&f=29

I paid about the same for a set on eBay and they came with a module that does a light show. Easy to install just look at each of the cords on the lights, if they're like mine they each have a different length.

I don't get to use them except at meets and shows but I did 'em!


Edit: these are LED lights not neon.

I really like my neon. Quite bright at night. I run the 6 piece kit from HotGlow and it has survived one Iowa winter so far.



That price looks really good on the ones you got. Good luck with the install! Hardest part on mine was making every connection 100% water tight. Other than that it was pretty good.

I made all of my connections inside the cab. No exposure to the elements at all. (not a Honda pun)

There's a little bit of drilling just for the mounting holes. The wires can be run up through the drain plugs in the floor under the carpet. It's not too bad of a job. If you need a hand let me know. You still have the digits?

Well the first set is going in the interior, I may order another set and put them under or in the engine bay. The green is BRIGHT, I hooked them up to the dome light circuit. I may put them on a switch with the rest of the lighting. We shall see. :D

Skeeter, looks like you're a member of the "red light district" now. :D
