    Please advise on Neon Hardwiring

    Im considering wiring some internal neons to my car but am unsure how.
    I want them in each of the front foot wells, and want to use a flick switch to control when they come on or off.

    The switch i have seen is a 3 terminal one. . . . im guessing one for the earth, one for the live feed to the positive side of the battery with a fuse built into the wire, and the other terminal to link the neons ?

    Is this correct ?

    I assume the switch you are looking at is illuminated. If so then the way you suggested is correct. The switches usually have markings on them to indicate which terminals to use. Keep the fuse as close as possible to where you are taking the power from.
