Dome light switches wire into cabin

#1 Post by Tim Menefee » Sun Apr 08, 2018 8:15 pm

Hi, I have a 59A. Trying to wire the dome light switches and don't know how the wires enter the cabin? There are no holes and don't want to drill any...

From the switches to the cabin there should be small holes in the panels. On the driver's side, look around the antenna cable hole. On the passenger side, above the speaker pocket.

this is the right hand side..
you can see the wiring exiting through the inside just above the horn relay.
