Where do you route wires

I am looking for a hole in the firewall to route my switch leads from my lights I just installed. Any suggestions?

I ran everything through the grommet in the passenger side foot well. The wire comes out under the battery tray. I was able to push enough wire through to avoid pulling the battery, but your mileage may vary.

I ran my wires through the foam insert and hole on the driver side next to the door. Snap the plastic panel off for access.

thanks for the input, I actually bought an A Post cover with toggle switches so needed the switch wires in the a post, I ended up running under the top panel on the hood next to the windshield and took off the 5 screws and removed the corner bracket, routed behind rubber corner piece and directly into the a post, no holes and cannot see any wires.
