Neons in an xb

I know many would like to kick me hard for saying this, but i feel compelled to rice up my xb a little. I want to put two small red neons behind the air scoops to get a red glow oozing out of them. I think it could look pretty evil to see a coupe with red eyes tomenting your rear vision mirror.

Firslty what are your opinions, am i breaking taboo to have a tru blu ford with this rice option.

Also where does the law stand with doing such a thing?

I know it is rice(y) and, I think that it's illegal, it may look OK.

Naw, Rice would be under car neons, or blue dash mounted LED's.

What you have described sounds good. Doubly so if the coupe is black :s6:

Apart from being Ricey, it is illegal to have red lights on the front of your car. Rice is bad, mkay...

rice is always bad.

to do this to a civic is a crime. to do this to a classic like an xb coupe is a crime punishable by death. a very slow death.

anyways, welcome to the forums.

You wash your car like it was your firstborn child, you tend to its needs like it was your own body, you protect it like it's your family, then you drive it like you stole it.
