Vibes Performance Accessories (from JTI) also gives a new meaning to lighting up. Vibes Rear Wings are built from aluminum for added durability in single and double blades. The VRW Blade 5 does something the others do not — it casts a blue neon glow out of either side of the blade ends. Likewise, the company's LED windshield sprayers are built with two spray nozzles, and lights that can be wired to operate independently or in conjunction with parking lights or turn signals in red, green, blue, white and yellow.
Low glow is also a popular addition to the lighting family; it uses neon to cast a fog on the underside of a driver's car. Liteglow Industries offers car, truck and motorcycle kits specifically for this effect. The bright neo tubes come in 11 colors, with custom combination options also available, like red, white and blue for patriotic drivers. Each Standard Pro Series kit contains two 4-foot and two 3-foot tubes, and a variable output transformer to support 9,000 volts of color. The kit can also flash or coordinate with a driver's built-in audio system.
Even a car's branding can get the star treatment. Street Beat Customs puts an automobile's name in lights with Lumi Logos. The Speed Glo logos attach to a car's body to light up if a driver happens to have a Ford, Chevy or Dodge. In addition, the company also offers add-ons like third brake-light covers, strobes and windshield-wiper lights.
