Default Need help with my aftermarket dimming mirror

So I am installing as I write this.... I have it mounted no problem, but I need to get to the fuse box underneath the hood, and place my temperature sensor by the front bumper.


I can't find an entry point for the wires and the small fuse black attached to it. As of right now, I have the wires coming down the A pillar on the passenger side, and I get stuck there.


Anyone with a 2000+ bonnie that can help me find a large enough entry point to the engine bay that will fit a small (inch by inch) fuse block through?

Thanks


(sorry if this should of been in general chat, or everything electrical)

well for now i did it the wrong way, which isnt bad or anything, just isn't through the fire wall, i have it going through the door well... but I don't want to abandon this idea, if someone knows where an access point is through the firewall into the engine bay, chime in!



oh yeah btw ETA 3 hours and 11 minutes until FWI and 180 Stat install at brianj'*!
