It feeds out behind the brake booster.

    Re: Large hole grommets

    You gotta plan that out dont just drill and hope because you will drill into something you dont want to , usually you can driill on passenger side easier cuz there is more room and less things mounted in the way . What kind of vehical ?

    Re: Large hole grommets

    2001 Lincoln Continental. Both my front and rear batteries are on the drivers side so that really isn't an option. I guess I'm just gonna stick with running the wires where the power already is.

    Re: Large hole grommets

    can you run them under the car and make your hole in the trunk area ? prob alot more places with easier accesses back there and in that car i dont think there is any room to drill on driver side but you could try pass side just use a longer power wire ?

    Re: Large hole grommets

    I have room to drill more where I have my current wire which is down behind the pedals, hence why it comes out by the brake booster cylinder. It's just suuuuch a pain to get to it... I haven't looked if I could run them under the car but I doubt it plus Wisconsin winters are hard on the underbodies of cars, I doubt it would be very easy on the wires. I'll probably run the wires under the carpet down the middle of the car next to the hump thing for what I assume is the exhaust pipes.

    Don't try to run 6 1/0 gauge wires on the inside of your car. Run them underneath and drill through the trunk like stated above.

    Re: Large hole grommets

    just be carefull drilling in that area easy to hit brake lines and electronics , drill a small hole first an stick a wire through to see where you are at . Good luck
