    Scott,

    Getting the power into an 8L is relatively easy. There is a spare grommet under the plastic flap on the passenger side between the windscrenn and the suspension mount. Comes out behind the glovebox



    Albert. There may be something similar on an 8P, but as I have not got one, can't help I'm afraid.

    Cheers,

    i put my power cable through the grommet about half way down the bulhead on the passengers side(look at the bulkhead slightly to the left of the airbox and look down)it's a bit fiddly but it's a hole you can use, there is already a cable runnin through and you can easily push the other wire through which comes out behind the passenger side carpets.
