you dont want to plug into the cig, that looks tacky. tap into the fusebox and find a ground around there, and add a inline switch on the + ...

as far as recommendations, i have none :) lol

i suppose you could do that, and they would come on/off with the car, but you loose that lighter socket. I know I use it for my cellphone daily, but heck if you dont use it, by all means have at it. Your gonna have to break a hole in the bottom of that compartment, and you could remove the cup holder and the shift plate to get as close to the corner by the carpet as you can, hopefully no one will be able to see your wires :)

What i did was i got 2 neon tubes, wired them together with a switch to turn on and off and splice the wires under the lighter socket and your done. Whenever you hit the switch the light goes on and you still have both your lighter sockets front one and the one in the armrest. I have a few pictures of the switch and the lighting in my cardomain in my signature if you want to see some pics.

I've got some green CCFLs tubes that I could put in the footwells. How do you guys think that would look? A little too christmasy with the red gauges?

that would be perfect for this time of year :) maybe make it interchangable and you can switch out the tubes easily whenever you feel like you're feeling a different color.

The tubes might be easy to switch out depending on where I put the inverter. The cable from each tube goes all the way to the inverter is why. I also have black lights that I'm using in my computer right now. I have 4 tubes in there and it might be cool to take 2 and put them in the footwells.

I think you just got bad tubes. I've seen red tubes before.
