Wiring Windshield Lights

I mounted up some old Warn lights on my windshield today, kinda been looking for a clean way to wiring them up, Do you guys have any tips? I'm thinking I might wait until I can pop my top and maybe run my wires in the window channel.

Im not sure if the cowl is removable on a Yj, but I know a lot of people (including myself) drilled a hole through our cowl and ran it through there. I connected MC cable to the inside of my KC's and inside my cowl for the clean look

Drilled holes in my lower hinges right into the cab. Sealed them with sealer. The trick is that I ran the wires thru some rubber tubing right into the back of my lights. The tubing sticks into the jeep about 2 inches and into the light about and inch. Secured from pulling back the other way by tiewraps.

Pic is from the aircraft landing light thread.

There definately is no great way to do this....
