For Those Running Light Bars

Quick question about those of you running windshield mounted light bars, where do you run the wire so it looks pretty decent on the inside and out.
Thanks

Then up to the bar.
Sorry for the 4 different posts it's only letting me do one pic at a time.

So it goes from the bar down inside behind the dash then there was this small square hole that I found up by the vin plate into the dash that was a PITA to get the wire through but I did then the wire went around the gauges and up and over the head light switch to the light bar switch. All tucked away. I pulled the wire out some so you could see it.

Ran my wires in-between the mount bracket and the soft top wind guard outside the Jeep.

Fed it through in-between the windshield and the tub, under the windshield cowling.

Then ran it down through the wiper motor hole and to a switch.

No new holes and it is hidden.

Had to put a little bit of sealant around the wires under the cowling to keep it watertight again.
