Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. The best way that we have found to run wires thru the firewall is as follows:

Locate an area on the firewall that does not have wires on the other side, and is accessible form inside the cabin.

Using a 'step' drill bit (this is a drill that drills a bigger hole the further it goes into the hole being created.

Get a common rustproofing body plug from a parts store

Drill the hole with the step bit to the exact size of the rustproofing plug

Paint the bare edges of the hole to reduce rusting.

Cut a hole into the middle of the body plug and run your wires thru it

Pop the body plug into place and seal with some RTV or similar sealer.
