Firewall Problem

I could really use a "how to" on geting throught the firewall I just need to run two small wires from the engine bay to the inside of the car. But I have no idea how to do it. Pictures would be great since I'm still a newb.

you can either drill a hole or go through the hole behind your brake pedal. it's got a rubber grommet. there's a few wires right there. what are you wiring?

I'm wiring an engine bay light like coby7 installed but instead of using the mercury switch I'm installing a blue glow toggle switch inside the car by the dimmer control switch. So I have to run wire from the light to the switch and back to my wire tap in the fuse box. So I just need a hole big enought for four 18 guage wires.

If you look behind the underhood fuseblock You will see a bunch of wires going through the firewall. There's room in the armour for more wires, just punch a fish through, tape your wires to it and fish em through.

I kinda did that already, but I went behind the break. I was trying to feed it threw with the wire that was already there but that wasent working so I just pierced a hole next to it and it turned out fine all I have left is to connect the ground and plug the fuse tap back in and I should be done. Or if I did something wrong its time to start trouble shooting. Lol
