Underglow Install Question

Ok, so my LEDGlow kit came in wendsday, and im using my day off tomorrow to work on getting them installed. I know like two or three people on here have them done, so i was wondering where you wired them into, where you put the control box, and what you used for hooking them into the car. Any help is appreciated, thanks everyone. Pics will be up hopefully tomorrow night!

Didn't u pm me about this? Lol
put the box under the headlight bracket, passenger side. An use metal zip ties to install the led tubes. U may have to drill some holes on the front an back of the car. The sides are easy

I put my control box on the fuse box under the dash, good place 4 it and the remote works at most angles etc. Of course shortly after, I took the control box off completely and just went with solid color. Also, I grounded the negative under the hood (anywhere) then ran the red wire into my dash to a switch. Then the other side of the switch to the ACC wire(instead you can go straight to the fuse box it's prolly easier). Any other questions? the install should be fun!!!

Same thing. Put the box somewhere under the hood (I had mine on top of the fuse box) but instead, wire the box' red wire to the battery terminal in front (but this option will make it so you can have your neons on with your car off) if you want your kit to turn off with your car so that you don't ever forget it and leave it on (especially during the day) then hook the red wire up to the fuse box under the dash inside the car. Those would be the best options. You might be able to find a fuse under the hood fuse box that turns off with the acc wire alsol, but not 100% sure on our cars. Anyone confirm this for me? and any other questions djp?

P.S. damn they made their control boxes nicer since I bought mine. remotes are more or less the same though. Tubes are identical to mine.

so the wires from the tubes go to the box and the box to the batt terminal?
