Default Running wires through the firewall?

I put a switch inside my car to control my driving lights - however, the wiring needs to go to the engine compartment, and I didn't know the best way to go through the firewall (so I didn't). The stock wiring goes through in a couple locations, surrounded by a rubber donut/seal thingy. Didn't want to remove/cut this in fear of damaging it.

Just wondering what people were doing in this situation. Thanks!

There is a groment on the drivers side firewall kinda near the clutch master cylinder. It's easier to see without the IC in place, but you can still get to it. What i usually do is take a razor, make a cut into the center and cut out a hole for the size of your wire and reinstall the groment. You will have to feed it from the engine side, it's even harder to see from inside.

There is also a round hole with a cover behind your brake pedal near the floor.
