hmm, through rubber garment... just look in the foot wells really really good. If not.. then your gonna have to drill a hole.. pick a place where there is nothing on either side(don't want to drill a hole in something useful)

Go to a Rolla Forum or a Toyota Forum and search for Power Wire. I bet there will be a few post asking where to run the wire for their system. You will find it in there. icon_cool.gif

good news icon_biggrin.gif i got everything to work. i was able to get the wire through the rubber garment thing.

at first, it wasnt working because i didnt ground the black wire well enough. i fixed it and now it works icon_smile.gif

oh.. i also used black zip ties to mount the CCs. after i finished, i thought that i should've used clear zip ties. will it make a difference? its still daytime here so i cant tell yet.

thanks for your help guys. ill try to put up pics tonight icon_biggrin.gif

nah the zipties dont cover much tube unless you used some really huge ones. i use little black ones and sometimes the clear ones if i have em and havent noticed any change in light output.
