Default Running power wire help.

Anyone wired up a 99 mazda 626 lx? i'm having a lil bit of trouble running a 1/0 power wire lol. i don't really wanna cut into some metal but by the looks of it. it's as hard as it was to wire up my volvo. anyone have any builds in one of these. i believe models thatthe same are 98-02 i believe.

Look for a forum specifically for 626 models or put the model of the car in the title

running 1/0 is never fun. i managed 2 runs under my carpet in my Taurus but i had to drill into the firewall. I rec this that way the wire comes in EXACTLY where you want it to. just be sure to use grommets and silicone after

well i just now looked again and on the firewall there is a plastic piece covering up where in a manual version of my car would be clutch pieces. so i'm hopiing once i get the cover off(and it's a *****) it will have a hole big enough to run a line. otherwise i may have to run underneath it. or just possibly do what i didn't wanna do and make a hole in the firewall.

omg it was a ***** and a half! but i got that damn piece out. and it will work perfect. my other option was there was a hole next to the bat that i could run it through the fender all the way to the door hinge. but this works perfect
