power wire can be run underneath the car.

if you look inside the car stick your head under the steering wheel. on the firewall behind gas pedal there is two rubber screw plugs holding a rubber circle. just push it out with a screw driver, once its out it will be your perfect hole to run the power wire. also the red wire is +, blue is negative

when your head's under the steering wheel down by the pedals, if you look on the side of the wall next to the clutch you'll see a rubber grommett thing. that leads to the space inbetween your interior wall and exterior wall. Theres aready wires that run through there all you ned at that point is to run your power wire through.... to do that there's a hole when you open th ehood you can see it. Run the power cable down and hae soemeone wiggle it until you can get your fingers on it and pull it through the hole.

This is a very bad idea for a daily driver car. The elements, component heat etc can all contribute to a ton of issues down the road.
