Engine bay LED's or Neons?
Anbody seen any pics of engine bay LED's or Neons? Or tried it? Or would that be just way too rice for most?

I'm thinking if nothing else it would be handy if you had to do anything under the Hood when it's dark out.

it depends...i'm not too much for them showing while normally driving (like inside of the hooscoop for example)

but..i do like the show look. such as when you see them when your Hood is popped open. i think its a nice touch then.

well, It's def a show thing but I'd go with LED simply b/c of the low draw on the electrical system, and you can leave them on for hours without draining you battery, neon sucks more juice. Go LED!!
