Im currently in the process of installing driving lights to my EL XR6.
I cannot for the life of me find a hole in the firewall that I can run a wire through for the switch.
Does anyone know where I can find one?

Cheers

if its an auto there will be a hole where the clutch cable would bo through otherwise pull out a grommet and feed your wires through it!

First thing I thought of too, but if you read his signature, his cars a manual.

Isn't there a plugged opening just to the right of the master cylinder? I'm sure thats where I ran my line for my battery for the stereo.

That is the 1 . I used tht 1 for my amp power cable.It,s the only 1 I could find aswell. I think there is 1 on the left as well ( where the bonnet cable goes ) but that looks to hard to get into.

Had to make up some custom brackets to mount the lights to...there is NOWHERE near the hole to fit the light to...all is sweet now though.

find a likely spot where your not going to hit anything, and make your own.

i also ran mine thru the bonnet release cable grommit, but whilst feeding the 4 guage wire thru, the bloody thing slipped out. crawlled under the dash and was near impossible to pout some force on it to shove it back in... in the end i split the grommit, cut out some material in the middle and replaced it. then just went round it with some silicon. should be sweet now

DONE!!!!

I ended up using the accelerator cable hole, was easy to access and had plenty room....

Im very pleased with the results!!

I still need to tidy up the wires a bit. And the light shines under the car at the front, almost looks like white neons or something LOL, I'll need to try and block that off a bit.

I might try hacking up the vent cover that I removed, to block up the hole on the outside of each light, make it look a bit more snug....but I'm quite pleased with the result!
