most ppl use the clutch cable hole.
however if its manual... you can either use the bonnet release hole of the actual loom gromet (under the brake booster and to the drivers door)

its a b**ch to get to but can be done from the inside.

the Amps in and the speakers are running to there full potential now. Sounds great to! :D

Thanks again guys..

The clutch cable hole is the easiest, ugliest, must untidiest and lasiest way!! there is another nicer professional looking way. Its called through just behind the drivers side headlight (beside battery!!) under the drivers side guard (have to remove guard skin) and in through the drivers kick panel. Which means no big cables seen in the engine bay and are saved by the hot exaust!

Thats originally the place I was going for Joolz but it was allot of stuffing around. I've run the wire nicely around the side guard then along the firewall so theres no wires hanging around. Now I just have to neaten up the boot a little lol

cheers, Nathan
