help installing new lights.

well i got some new lights today. i installed them and every thing. there sweet. but theres a switch that is for turning it on and off because its wired seprately. right now the switch is inside my engine bay and im scared to drive it. is there a hole in the firewall that i can fit a small 5 prong connecter through? i really dont want to drill a hole but i cant find a way to get it in.

My wires are running in where the steering column is. Also, there are at least 3 grommets that can be removed to make room for wires.

Without drilling holes you can cut a small slit in the steering column grommet and fish them through.
