Ive talked to alot of people about streetglow and installing it on my 1993 camry, from what ive heard, I might need a bodykit too so, that the light from the bulbs does not shine into traffic. Is there anyway I can install neons without spending another grand on a bodkit or side skirts?

Seems like since you don't want it to shine into traffic too much that you intend to have it on during traffic... in that case, save up a few hundred anyways for all the tickets the cops are gonna give you for having your neons on while in motion.

i had the neons on my car before AND still do after i installed my body kits...true...no body kits equals extra shine perimeter but it's not like it's BEAMING out into traffic an makin people trip out and it's not like it's a laser your shinin in someones eyes an shit...body kits just block more of the light and with proper placing and installation or neons it will be strictly for the most part under your car it looks sick

you would put the neons on your camry the same way if it had a body kit or not. it just doenst look as good (IMO) if you can see the whole friggan bar, if you plan on gettin a kit later, and all you can afford now is neons, cool, thats just the way i was.

As I quoted you before AMEN to that!!! As long as you have proper fittment your neons will not show.

i had neons on my wagon the only thing i didn't like was how cheap they were built cause they cracked (they still worked) i don't plan on putting anymore on my car. but there is a way to mount them to "hide" the bar. another thing that helps is if you put metal tape on the spot your going to mount the neons that way you'll see the light alot brighter

How much do you think it would cost to have them installed? Does 300 sound reasonable just for the install?

damn...you must really want to know...in my opion 300 is way to much to pay for just an install, thats like twice what you pay for them?? its easy to do it yourself, if not, then i think somewhere like 100 ish -/+ $50 is what you might expect to pay for just an install...

What generation (or year) camry do you have?

I agree with the above posts. For one, you don't need it. Second, don't use it in traffic. Third, if you do it, mount in properly and you won't need a body kit.

Otherwise they're relatively easy to install. Just don't be lazy running the wiring or they'll short/break/become exposed and corrode.

Also, try LED tube kits instead of neon.

I put this in my camry myself. I was not able to hide a tube in the rear so i did not put one there nad just put 2 in the front. What i did to cut down on seeing the bulb was put a strip of BLACK ducttape on half of the bulb. this way it only shines down on the ground.

neons are fackin lame, i used to have em and they're about as much help as having wisdom teeth. completely worthless. don't waste your time and work on making your cam faster.
Don't knock what he wants to do, if he wants neons let him get neons some people just want to make their car look nice and not get into performance stuff and vice versa, we are not here to judge.:nono:

I second that. No one asked for your 2 cents about his personal choice, either you help answer the question, or you don't post at all.

/not my 2 cents.
