You can do LED strips, Check with Buggman, that man is the LED GURU and can get you pretty much anything you need!

clinton clinton clinton always pushing buggman.... lol personally i would do led strips neon tubes are ok but you have to think of it this way "IF" you were ever to get in a wreck bad enough to smack where you put the neon tubes your just gonna have that much motre glass to get off of you and around.... and the led strips will give you more than enough light for the look your going for.... but yeah buggman is the led king around here....

Neon on the inside may be great for a show queen but when you are driving at night the neon will overwhelm your night vision. LEDs are much better on the eyes and will last longer and you don't need a lot of power to run them.

leds are great, but I would keep the lights on a switch, so nothing is lit while driving at night except the instruments.

as for painting the plastic parts, be careful. it can look ricey very quickly if you go too far. (imo, anything at all is too far, though).

people swap different colored gauge faces in from explorers, fx4s, etc. and it looks really good.

I got LEDs in my vents, in my back by my jack, in the little cubbyhole hole by the passenger airbag, also got some in the footwells, I got mine running off two cigarette lighters so I can plug em in and they on, easier than a switch IMHO also modded my mustang done with all LEDs. Gonna try and find a Place c

----------

Place for some by the doorplates but that might be a lil tricky
