Easiest route for fog light switch wire?

Trying to wire up a set of fog lights and im not sure which way is the easiest to route wire through the firewall to the lights. Im thinking to go along with the antenna wire, but im sure some of you out there have done this before so which way should i go? Thanks

Not sure if that would effect the antenna reception while the lights are on. Look for any unused gromets on the engine side, and if there is one, poke through the insullation and install the wire there. If not, pick a good spot, and don't be afraid to drill your own, just make sure its clear on the other side. Install wire with a gromet and you're good to go!

If you have set the lights up to pull 12v power from the fuse block or battery, you should not have any electrical interference from a switch wire routed through the antenna grommet. There are also grommets on the drivers' side firewall that will accomodate a small gage switch wire without modification.
