Default Underbody neon install

I just got a kit today and was wondering how it's done. I was gonna put a switch in between the rear wiper and the defroster switch.

Mine are LED's but had NEON before them. They should have some hangers on each light bar that screw into the edge on the sides and a couple points in the front and rear. NEON's are easier because one light bar is attached to the other and yo only have one wire to work with. LED's have a wire from each light so the computer can control the light sequence so 4 wires have to be routed to the computer and power source.

The only drilling required should be to put the screws up to hold the light bars. Routing of the wires shouldn't need any drilling. There's plenty of holes around the car to route the wires. My computer controller is in the cubby hole above the front cup holders as your thinking of doing. You can see it in the picture. The wires should be long enough for any car. They know that the wires have to go a long way, especially from the back of the car to the front.

My LED's had two bands around them (one for each end) and the band had a long screw that went into whatever you used to hold the tube. I used the double lip of the undercarriage and just drilled two holes about 3 feet apart where the screw holding the band would be screwed into. Hard to explain but you can probably just screw the screws right into the undercarriage also. Anyway they would go into something that would hold the bands would do. Do you have the bands that go around the LED tubes that close by using a long screw?
