Hey guys. Can someone please tell me if Radioshack sells El Wire? I want to get some for my Xbox so that it can appear to have "Ground Effects". Which colour would look best with My Xbox?

Nah, i was at RadioShack the other day, but they didn't have any EL wire, i looked a lot online and found the best place to be www.elwirecheap.com, they seem to be the cheapest.

if u buy a ready made kit (maplin in u.k do one for 10 , u could probably find cheaper tho) , these are usually more or less ready just to hook up , u just unplug hard drive molex , put pass thru connector on , then plug hd power cable into it , and et voila biggrin.gif
