On the drivers side theres 2 factory pins on the 'dash' side of the door loom that has the power,

On the passenger side Front, I don't think theres any provision, but I could be wrong, other than that you can use the roof light thats in the body loom (but It may terminate at the RHS passenger seat)

as for the flexible water protector... untape the ends and poke a coat hanger through it along with her new wires!

I've always added a twisted pair to the door looms whenever I operate on the door wiring! you just never know when you need something there!
