    leftover trunk weatherstriping works great, if you have any laying around.

    Re: Large hole grommets

    I plan on 2 runs of 0ga and the grommet I'm currently using barely fits my single run of 2ga... What's the best way to get the wire through the firewall? Drill holes and get grommets for them?
