Anything you can. basically, try to avoid clumps of wires but instead use perhaps an existing tie holding something down/in place. Just poke around. poke

I found it a lot easier just to drill the far under lip of the dash, then string them through. That will allow you to keep them completely out of view, and you can't see the holes at all.

If it's just two small ones in the bottom of the dash, I wouldn't worry about it. I may go out and do this tomorrow.

I was going to drill mine in too, except that depending on where the mounting holes are for your lights there is no place the get a secure screw. The zip ties hold them reallly solidly and there's no drilling. If you wire them into a switch and don't use a toyota ground you should drill in a screw to establish a strong ground. thumbsup
