Where to drill thru firewall and dash
I hope this does not sound like a lecture. I just ran the wiring for my instrument pod and had to go thru the firewall and thru the dash. I drilled two holes and thought I would post the pictures in case anyone is hesitant to drill in these areas. The holes that I made are in places that do not interfere with or cause any problems.
The first picture shows where to drill from under the hood. The hole should be just to the right and outside of the gromment and to the left of the brake master cylinder.
The second picture shows a wire in the hole without the drill in the way.
The third picture shows a close up of the wire cable going thru the hole
The fourth picture shows where the drill bit comes thru under the dash to the upper right of the steering column.
The fifth picture shows a safe place to drill down thru the top of the dash without hitting anything.
The last two pictures are in the next post because there is a limit of five pictures per post.
The sixth picture shows the instrument pod mounted on the dash.
The last picture shows where you can tee into a vacuum line if you are installing a vacuum gauge.
Maybe someone can clean post the pictures instead of the links. Thanks in advance
I thought that this post might help in case you are worried about drilling in these areas.
