    no - I'm talking about one person specifically, he seems to think that if you tell him that it looks factory that it's an insult....no matter how good the work looks....

    ooh wait wait.. heres one of the back seat =P

    heres the secret...

    its a CCFL computer neon tube (2 under each front feet area, 2 under the seats) =P they have a pretty wide range of voltage input... i think it was like 11-15 or 25 or something.. so i have it hooked up directly to the car battery with a switch and a fuse...

    hah.. actually they are a bit cheaper than that.. like 10-12 for each pack.. that includes 2 CCFL lights.. i think i have about 7 packs? .. i also used to work for the local computer store which brought them down to a nice 8 dollars a pack... i was trying to go for a factory look as possible.. but i jsut couldnt get around the dvd/cdrw drive...
