No you don't really have to. Try pulling up the door weatherstripping a bit and see if you can see the wire.

'A' Pillar is the roof support at the corner of the windshield and the door. 'B' Pillar is the roof support behind the door. 'C' Pillar is the next one back, etc..


On a side note, you should probably pull your carpet and start on your floor rust repairing. Hopefully it's not too much.

When I did my inside lights, I grounded everything, then ran the 12v thru a toggle. That way, they're on when I want, and not just because the door is open.
