if you are looking at the car from the front, it is above where the headers are, in the firewall of course. it sticks out a little way and will proabably have a black grommet in it. approximately 1cm in diameter.

from the inside the wire will come through in the upper part of the drivers footwell, just feed enough through and you should be able to spot it.

its a bit harder but well hidden, try the same path as the radio antenna. thats if your mounting the scanner antenna on the passanger side.

clutch cable hole is by far the easiest way.
otherwise there you can punch a hole with a screwdriver in the wiring harness that goes thru the firewall behind where the cruise module sits.

if you dont know where this is, its basically just above and to the left of the steering column.

ive got 2x coax and 2x4ga running thru there, so there is plenty of room :)
