I used the same hole as the hood release cable.It's alittle tricky but it worked for me.

I went through the passenger door frame.......ran the wires up the passenger side, to where the glove box is. Then there is a hose around the wires for power windows/locks, etc. cut a hole in that and ran the wire through that and fed the wire up the fender, into the engine compartment. after that, ran the wire under the lip that the hood rests on, then ran it to the battery.

Are you talking about the flexible black tube that runs into the door? If so, that sounds like a good idea.

yes, that's the part I was talking about. make it easy on yourself and start from the battery, and work back. this is so that you can feed the power wire down the fender, in stead of pushing it up. If you already started, and have to do it the hard way (like I did the first time) then attatch a coat-hanger to the power wire, or something substantial like that, to make the wire easier to feed.
