Getting ready to start wiring, and hooking up my gauges to the engine. I need a source on firewall grommets. Where are you guys getting these things?

Also, how are you drilling your holes in the firewall for say the oil pressure, temp, water temp, ect lines? I was thinking of using a Unibit.

Just about any hardware store will have them in all sizes.

Lowe's and Home Depot both have grommets and the unibit is the way to go.

Hardware store are good for small grommets, but if you need bigger ones, go to an auto parts store. Look for PVC valve grommets - they'll have dozens of different ones.

Rob good questions. I think you and I are at the same stage in our build, because I to was wondering where I could get grommets. The one I would like to know where to get is the grommet on the front of the drivers foot box just above the brake master cylinder to take up the large hole. Is this a grommet that comes with a donor or can you buy the grommet somewhere?

Also Rob, where are you planning on drilling your firewall for the oil and temp lines and how are you going to route these lines? Do you have the mechanical gauges? Thanks!
