Under wiring ...

I'm working on lighting up my wheel wells :-)
And installing under car lighting.

Once I have the lighting installed I'll run the negative wires to the frame and in each wheel well somewhere...

But I want to run all the positive wires back to a junction box, say in the engine bay or the trunk, the junction box itself powered from a switch in the cabin on the centre console ... and so on ... from the battery

My question is then ... what do you people do to secure the wires under the car?

I'm hoping there is some super-adhesive wire clip I could use, instead of drilling, screwing or bolting on clip fasteners.

Maybe there is some magical tape?

I hope to find the shortest route from a rear wheel well to the interior .. is there one on each side? Or should I drill & grommet?

I hope to find the shortest route from a front wheel well to the engine -> interior ... is there one on each side? Or should I drill & grommet?

Thx :-)

Thanks STIG,

I was hoping for some automotive strong sticky pads like these maybe?

Do such things exist for cars?

Yes - just be sure to clean the area where you're sticking it really well.

I really like the idea of not drilling, or giving Rust a purchase, or having to jack the car up to get an angle for the drill :-)

OK links please everyone for the above solutions, or at least proper Trade names please.

I'm in UK so it may have to be eBay for me or get my cousin in USA to ship to me... Thx

the plate with the green tie wrap will work fine, i have used them and them work great. lowes sells them.
clean area with alcohal/degreaser add some clear silicon to it and your good to go. i add the silicon because i have had a few in the past come off.

Lupe,

Are your silicon'ing on the stick pad area?

Or just coating over and securing the whole pad once its stuck on with it own pad?

I believe he's putting silicon on the sticky-pad area. But I could be wrong.

If that's the case, you can buy them without the adhesive pad and save a few cents.
