Where to drill?

Im planning to put a manual choke kit on the YJ this weekend. Anyone have advice on the best place to drill through the firewall? If you happen to have one of these, pictures of your setup (where you mounted your brackets and all) would be greatly appreciated.

I did mine, I'll post some pics tomorrow for you. I went through the firewall keeping the choke cable pretty straight and then straight down through the stock air cleaner. I drilled a 7/8" hole and put an L16 (AC90 connector) to support the cable and some duck seal to keep the dirt out.

Here are the pics.

Through the firewall inside the Jeep, just above the throttle cable.

Through the firewall in the engin compartment.

Through the air cleaner (I'm going to do the carb upgrade sooner then later so I didn't worry too much about the hole)

Hooked to the choke.
