Running wires thru firewall

Ok I'm having a hell of a hard time trying to do this. I've looked everywhere and can't find anywhere to run the wires thru. I don't really want to drill a big hole thru there but I need to get a good amount of wires thru, probably around 10. Where did you guys drill your holes at?

I pushed the gromet for the hood release out ran the wires trough and then put the gromet back in. I have 3 wires running through there.

I used the grommet up by the brake pedal too. Pretty easy to get too from both sides.

You can also use the rubber grommet for the main wire harness down by the pass side foot area.

...also, if you remove (temporarily) the fuse/relay box in the engine compartment, there's a 'free' area just above where the main harness passes through the firewall. Many folks have drilled a few holes here (and installed grommets) for supplementary wiring. Once the fuse/relay box is remounted, they're "invisible".

There is a hole about the size of a quarter by the break or clutch. I used a wire coat hanger to get my wires through.
