Look at your fuseblock in the eng bay and follow it to the rubber grommet in the firewall and run the wire through there and up under the dash

That's how I did it. That's your wire loom firewall boot. I used a metal hanger and taped the wire to it and threaded it through the boot from the engine bay. Once you get that first wire through any additional wires seem to thread through with less effort.

That's what I used when I jammed my coax cable through there... Of course a little soap would of helped. Funny how I thought about it after the fact. lol

When I had my antenna mounted off the box I ran the coax through a rubber grommet underneath the drivers seat.

on the first picture i am pointing at the place were the hole with the rubber is
on the second one you can see were it comes in, i sealed it with flextra kinda of a messy job but you cant see it from youre house so its all good
on the third one im pointing at were you have to pass it, might have to unclip the triming a bit
then you unscrew the kicking board and put it underneath it
then i point at were my wire is going under the carpet
for the power i hooked it on a 15 amp accesory fuse so when i turn the key off the cb goes off(some people put it on the lights fuse or something and it always stays on)
