i got my cold cathodes today and was pretty excited... i installed them myself and ran the switch in to the ash tray... they are UV cathodes so i didnt expect them to be that bright (seeing as they are on the opposite end of the spectrum) and they look good for accenting light... i like them but im interested in LED tubes more (because of how long they last)... and will get them when i get the money.. my friend will buy my cathodes off of my and what not... so i was wondering if i could see pics of people with LED tubes that are more on the cooler side of the spectrum...

gives an idea of where they are


look kinda blue.. camera doesnt take the greatest pics... haha.. and plus they UV

I don't know where you got your cold cathodes, but I'd recommend you take a look at oznium.com. They have good prices on cold cathodes and led strips... they pretty much offer a lot of rice-tastic lighting cheap. I got a dual 12" cold cathode set from them for like 10 shipped, and they are awesome.

like i said.. my camera sucks at taking pictures.. but yea.. they dont illuminate the foot well all that well.. its noticeable when its night and im in the car... i can definately see a diff when i turn the switch on and off.. but its not a huge difference... a part that plays a major roll is the fact that its UV and on the opposite side of the spectrum.. which was why i was thinkin about buying some blue LED tubes that i found a pretty good deal on... the lights more or less just make some things glow.. and for some reason i think blue would look better in my car....
