Default Running wire to the rear underside of car

Simple question.. Whats the best way to run a wire from the passenger compartment to the the rear underside of the car, specifically the rear diff? I'm doing a lot of rewiring of mods and I want to wire my STI cluster to my rear diff sensor instead of just grounding it so it actually has a function. I just can't find a way to wire from the trunk area to underneath the car.

Run the wire inside the vehicle from the cluster, under the passenger's side inside rocker mouldings (what covers the edge of the rug) to under the rear seat.

Under the rear seat are grommets and covered openings so you can effectively run the wire to the rear-end from there without having an exposed wire running the length of the car.

Thanks, I ran the wire under the rear seats and there was a rubber seal with some wires running through it behind the fuel lines. I just poked a hole in it with an exacto and ran the wire through to under the car. It hooked right to the rear diff sensor using a spade connector, but I might get the OEM connector from the dealership to avoid corrosion on the leads.

If you cannot source an OEM connector, use shielded crimp-on connectors and put dielectric grease on each connector to keep water, dirt, and so-on out.
