Thumbs up Rally Light Wiring: ROUTE THROUGH ROLL CAGE

I have 4 Hella 3000's mounted to tabs on my factory roll cage. I am tired of looking at sagging wires and zip ties. I would like to drill into the cage and route the wires through and into the engine compartment -- but wanted to get advice from you guys first.

Has anyone done this successfully?
What steps did you take?
Special tools required, etc.?
Any pics?

I found this old post but was hoping for a bit more insight from someone who has done it.

I hope I have not confused you with this explenation. I wish I had some pictures of the thru the bar thing. Good luck.

If you can take off the cage, and run the wires down the drivers side, then you can run the wires into the cab through the existing hole in the firewall, behind the instrument cluster.
