Audio (and aftermarket electronics) This is your place for alarms, remote starters, to brag about your system, exaggerate your db levels, or simply ask questions for stock or aftermarket audio. No Flames! (except from roasted amps)

Well the quickest would be run it thru the top of your fender and into the cab past the door and along the side under your paneling...
The cleanest would to to push it thru the hole in the firewall and run it down thru the canter concel and under the carpet and back seat and into the trunk.

In my car there was a plastic chunk on the passenger side of the engine bay, under the fuse relay cover. I drilled a hole into that(mindful not to drill any wires) and ran my wires through that.

That'* the same way I ran the ether tube to my trans temp gauge in my A-pillar. I found the plastic passthru next to the steering boot under the column, and drilled through that. Squirted some silicone in there for extra measure. Much better for wires and hoses to pass through plastic than metal, even with a grommet.

I would seriously never do that if that door is shutting on that wire and pinching it then eventually that plastic sheething is going to wear out and expose that wire. if that happens all that current could go into ur door and then ur life could come to its tragic end or at least ur car
