Fog Light Wiring

Any one got any bright ideas on where i can install my fog lights without having the wire all exposed. I have a 1990 sof top jeep Wrangler YJ. I'd like to mount them up along the side near the door. I was thinking of attaching them to the windshield so it would not inrterfere with the top being pulled on and off, but i have no idea how i can run the wires without having them exposed. Is trhere some sort of secret or what? If you have any ideas PLEASE post. i am sure lots of people have similiar questions.

if you want to mount it on the window hindge, fold down the windsheld and put the wire across the inside of the top dash. you may also want a new seal at this time as well to prevent leaks. that would probably look the best. if you want to mount it higher,(figure out your own mount) and run the wires inside the black trim along the winsheld sides that the soft doors lay on. un bolt the 4 (i think) bolts and put it in there

Its not what you buy...its what you BUILD!!!

Thanks for the tip. I just bought some mounts of www.quadratec.com that fit on the side of the windshield. I'll try to run the wires underneath like you suggested. Many thankx

I got a follow-up question for ya. I got the mounts in place and the lights attached to the mounts. I folded down the windshield ran the wires underneath and onto the dash, now what?? How do i run the wires to the power source?? Do i have to drill through the frame or is there an easier way. I think i am stuck. The wires look nice and un-exposed, but now i just need a power supply. Any help is much appreciated.
