Now once you get PAID to fix something, you can hang out your shingle as a "Professional" mechanic......

i would find some firewall grommets or run the wire's along a harness that goes through the fire wall and wrap it with electrical tape so it looks like no one was ever there

^^^ This and silicon, or something similar, to seal the hole. A little cheat to use silicon in tight places is to use a latex glove a spray with Windex, squeeze silicon onto glove, and install. The Windex keeps the silicon from sticking to the glove and it works great.

ah1f39 If you have an automatic the clutch line hole makes a nice easily accessed place to dill through. The plastic is easier to drill through and there is less chance it will chafe the wires.

WrinkledCheese Service tech told me, when questioning him about that very issue, was to drill a small hole and install a rubber grommet. The hole shouldn't be too big and there should be little, if any, extra space.
