Gauge wires question

Where do you guys run the wires through the fire wall? Do you drill a hole or is there a gromet somewhere that I can use?

Thanks

Gauge wires question

I used the plate that covered the hole where the clutch rod would go. I drilled it big enough for all my wires, and air lines for my air bags. I used a piece of wire loom to cover the edge, and when I was done I squeezed a bunch of silicon over the hole.

Great, I was looking under the passenger side and found a gromet in the door but really didnt like the location.

Thanks

I used the clutch cover plate on the fire wall and the grommet on the heater ducting.
