    Default Poking cables through firewall?

    Hey all,

    Not sure whether to post it here or car audio but I could imagine it would get more views here as its a 380 specific question. I'm trying to install an amp and I need to run a power cable to the battery terminal. The only problem I have is getting the cable out to the battery from the inside. It doesnt appear to have any grommets for internal cabling or they've concealed it pretty well. I'm sure a large amount of people here on AMC have installed amps, so can anyone tell me if there is an existing hole I can use or if I need to drill a new one.

    Cheers,
    Physicx.

    I am sure that any state will struggle to put on an equivalent to what MMX was, it was awesome both in the aspect of events and the social aspect after cruises,

    Warren yes we do need more 380's out in NSW.....

    In relation to your amp mate, I ran mine through the dash to the left side footwell of the passenger side and fed it through an existing hole that already had wires in them ( wires that power the passenger side door) then up into the passenger guard over the plastic guard liner to the front of the guard in the engine bay just behind the headlight and fed it through to the battery that way, as anyone that knows me and my car Im pretty pedantic with that kinda thing and have this thing where no matter what it is i will not make any extra holes in the body work, you don't have to go through the same way I did but ibthinknitbwas the easiest most direct way with out drilling into anything.

    Feel free to cone out to a social and check it out one day to see how I've ran my wiring
