IP: Logged

Message:
if i have a regular streetglow gold series undercar kit with 4 bulbs and a 9500v transformer...but want to add two 12" bulbs to give more light to the rear of the truck can i run them off the same transformer as the other bulbs or will that be to much for the transformer? thanks.

you could do that, but i think you sould just hard wire them. You may have problems down the line by adding two tubes to that trans. Just a warning two 12" tubes probably won't give you that light your looking for. Plus they break easier. I did what you want to do....then i bought another undercar kit. now i have 2 tubes on each side.

I have enough neons to put on my own light show. Got a neon question? ask me :)

Just a question, hope is's not a stupid one. I am wanting to add undercar lights to my Dak but I have heard of several folks being stopped by the law because of improper uses of blue and red lighting. One local here was stopped because of tire valve lights. any input is appreciated. Location Oklahoma City, Ok.

it just depends on the local laws in ur area...i know in michigan where im originally from any undercar neon of any color is illegal to drive with...but here in NC the only illegal colors are red and blue and cops are still leanient on those...call your local police and ask them for their laws regarding them...

justin.. 2 12" tubes being added on would work. All i'm sayin' is that those kits aren't meant to handle extra tubes. I'm just wondering where your getting 12" tubes from? Streetglow makes 10", 15", and 20" tubes. If your talking about using one of these, then tying them into your kit isn't nesscary. They have built in transformers, so you could just hardwire them, (which is what i would do). But also keep in mind if you are thinking about using one of these sizes, they will not show up well at all. And they crack a lot easier. I've been there, and it isn't worth the money to keep replacing them. I have 2 under car kits, that is what i meant. I have 2 up front, 2 in back,..ect. The tubes on the side are 48". One is just under the door(behind the lip), the other runs along the frame (under the bed). This lights up the sides form front to back. I suggest if you have the money get 2 kits and mount where i did. I gaureentee it'll be worth the money.

Please let me know if you need any more clarifacations. Lata.

i use to sell neons out my shop in bullhead city, Az. and we did expands on some costumers cars,and the voltage the transformer puts out is what the light requires to work , it will not effect the kit if you add more lights to it but to be safe i have to agree it would be better to add another transformer to it depending on your electrical system,stereo and acceseroies also make a diffrence on the demand.....hope it helps and yes neons and exterior lighting depends on your local laws so you should contact the law and get the traffic bylaws for the area on lighting and equiptment better to be safe then sorry.....later...rick

If anyone is in need of a kit I have a Blueline series Streetglow kit, in the color Blue. What I did was bought 2 kits. The gold series and blueline series. I used the 2 51" tubes for the side of the truck, 1 30" tube in the front and one in the rear. Then I used the 2 30" tubes from the blueline series kit under the bed to make it 6 tubes under the truck, then I used the 2 remaining 48" tubes under the bed rails to light the bed, it was awesome. I switched over to yellow and sold my blue gold series kit already and still have the blueline series kit. Everything is in awesome shape in the original packaging. Email me at dodgep0wer@yahoo.com if interested, I will work out a deal.
