Windshield Lightbar Wiring Routes for CJ7

Anyone have good suggestions on where to tuck a 50ā€ light bar wiring coming down the windshield and ultimately needing end up in the engine compartment?

Iā€™m mounting a 6 switch bank under the hood and then a single wire will run to a 6 position rocker witch inside the cab.

Thanks for any feedback

You can drill a hole in the windshield frame and feed it down through the cavity to behind the dash pad. If you lower the windshield you can then feed the wires down where the wiper harness is, down to the firewall and through. You can buy grommets at electrical shops and i would touch up bare metal. You need some local slack near the top of the cowl so you can lower the windshield.
