Alright, sounds good. Could you pm me where you picked up the stuff from? And a brew or two is not too steep a price for me bro!

Not a bad price either.
It is with a plate over the cup holder, i glued the aquarium tubing to the inside of the plate.

yeah i seen someone post a picture of it and the cup holder was clean and it didnt have excess light shining through so thats what gave me the idea of doing it like this to see if we can have something like that on a camaro and i think it came out pretty well in my opinion. Going to see if i can do it again but this time a much cleaner version.

i did use quick connects wire but not from this web site and i also soldered my own connections. the one on this web site look like the will solder the quick connect to the el wire for you which i would recommend getting because its a pain cutting the el wire just right. If you buy the el wire from this web site also buy the inverter if you don't have a inverter than your el wire will never work.

What do you do with the inverter once it's plugged in to the el wire? Do you just wire that into a power source?

That's correct wire the inverter to any 12 volt power supply.
