Any recommendations on the easiest/best way to route a cable from radio to engine?

Hello,

I am thinking of putting a front facing camera somewhere on my 2013 Focus Sedan, however I'm not sure where the best place to run the wires would be.

I have everything going from the radio, under the steering wheel, then up or down by the driver's side door (external mic and backup camera).

Is there a somewhat easy access conduit between the passenger compartment and engine Bay Area that I can run a small cable through?

Thanks,

If you have an automatic you can go through the plug where the clutch pedal would be on the drivers side. If you have a manual tranmission you can run it through the passenger side at the fuse box where the factory wiring runs through the fire wall.

In order to get power from the battery to an amp in my rear hatch, I punched a hole through the rubber grommet that the rest of the wires from the engine bay run through. It's located on the passenger side, under the dash, and is easily accessible if you take off the glove box.
