Mr.Bergner I drilled mine just a few inches below where the fuse box is. I then used a coat hanger with my wire taped to it, to fish it out into the engine bay. Once the wires were ran, plugged the hole with a special type of clay made to hold wires in place so they don't get frayed or cut on the metal edge.

zetecDon As Paul said, if you have an automatic there is a hole there already for where the master cylinder sits. It's usually plugged with a rubber stopper. All you have to do is remove that stopper and you have an open hole under the dash to run wiring. If you are driving a manual transmission, you can drill a hole about an inch above the clutch master cylinder.

If it's an auto you can just use the hole for the clutch pedal. If it's standard then you can drill a hole somewhere close to there but I'm not for sure. I know there were a lot of threads on this if you do a little searching I'm sure you could find them.
