Please consider few more details so I and future newbies would be able to make them easily.
Cost of Neon
How is it sticking to Under car body (nuts/bolts/screws/araldite ?)
Are the Neons 12v since you bought or you moded them
What power method you use, Stay on with parking or you have a seperate switch to control them.


Anyway I've Made one LED Long strip for under bumber, but haven't fixed it under car yet.
Will post pics soon as its Nice Bright Light with two options, White & Blue.

I would be using the SILICON Sealant available at Glass wholeseller's.
Its Rs.100/- a pack and would do good water-proofing for under car parts.

Those neons are 12v rated.

The power input is direct from car battery with a 10amps fuse and a switch in between.

i can tell you in delhi where to find it ,search for paharganj acrylic sheet market or go to chawri bazaar

for allahabad i can say go to the place where hoardings and acrylic sheet banners are made,local hardware shops

look for the rod only as acrylic rod also comes with the hole one ,they will not serve the purpose

WOW is not the word, Dude your dedication and hard work is showing on the car and it is simply superb. I just saw your thread this morning and read it from the first page to the last in a single go. Thats a real great DIY man and this thread definitely needs to be rated 5 star.

I am simply thrilled and planning some DIY myself for the mesh grill for my swift and also some under body neons. Let me go searching for stuff today.

Cheers buddy.

BTW where can you source those underbody lights from ? i mean car Accessories shop or electrical shop? I had planned this earlier and went in search of these lights but did not find it in any car accessories shop.

Hi Guys.. can anyone suggest me, the swift has got an orange backlighting to the dash.. is it possible to achieve a blue or white lighting just by changing the bulbs ? Is the same type of bulb, the parking bulbs ?

Cool Mods. I'm planning doing the blue lights for the speedo console. Nice alloys. Look like the Appollo Accelere Wheelz. Wanted the same for my car. How much did they cost?

A friend of mine changed the orange backlighting in his Alto to these blue ones. I didn't like the blue backlighting though as I prefer the soft warm orange-ish glow of the current setup!
