Shoot Nick! You should of just purchased a length of heat reflecting tube rather that drilling into the bulkhead. Have a look (http://www.designengineering.com/pro...sp?m=sc&cid=10). Summit Racing sells thier products. If you look at the stock battery cable that runs to your starter you'll see what I'm talking about.

Yeah, I thought of that but I really didn't like how the cable SAT under the truck. It was always hanging here or there and I really didn't like the idea of having it running under the truck, I really just couldn't find 'the right spot' for it.
And it made the PIAA light installation a LOT easier...

Thanks for the link though... (I love links!).... I can think of other applications to use that stuff on.

I run my XM antenna wire through the gap in the weather stripping on the corner of the top of the door. Then down the inside of the frame under the plastic trim. Works well for them but then again they are on the thin side.

Can't you feel 'em circlin' (closin'in) honey?
Can't you feel 'em swimmin' around?
You got fins to the left, fins to the right,
