OK here is a small diagram

On the cigi lighter the wire that joins to fuse is POS the other is neg

Run the positive to the batt then put a fuse in no more than 30cm away form batt, then put in the switch in sumwhere along the line, then run that wire to the neon....

Then the other wire off neon gets bolted to a sanded metal part of body for the ground.....

If ur not sure on what u are doin get sumone else to do it coz if u do it wrong say bye bye neons

With the fuse start small eg 5amp n work ur way up until it stops blowin it....

OK here she is should work now

I would be more inclined to earth out the neons on the door switch or something, or take power from ignition not battery as a failsafe if they are left on.

And get your hands on a multimeter which will allow you to calculate the amperage draw and required fuse to use with them, most neon kits come with the wiring and fuses etc. anyway

Yeah that how i would do it.....Only reason i put it to the batt is coz its alot easier thing to do when u dont no how to wire em up properly thru the ingnition.... Most ppl dont know how to wire into the ignition so i just made the diagram this way so it would be easier for him to wire them up himself, if there not very electricaly minded....
