routing wire into coupe doors from inside

hey guys.. anyone have pics of someone who tackled upgrading the speaker wires that go from the inside of the car through the rubber grommet and into the doors?

I'm going to tackle this probably next weekend.. I'll be sure to take pics, but instead of making life harder... I'd appreciate some help. I know someone mustve upgraded the sad stock wiring with at least 14-16gauge wire.

thanks.

I did this a while back but didn't take any pics. Sorry. But it's a hard job. I straightened out a hanger and taped the speaker wire on the hanger and sent it up through the rubber. It's tricky but when you get one side through the other one will be sort of easier when you get the hang of it. I heard of easier ways of doing it but at the time that was the only way I knew how to do it. Good luck

Or was that a incorrect interpretation of facts

I routed the wires..
The left handside was quite easy using a thin wire coat hanger. The right passenger side.. was the mother-whore of all time!!!
The wire hanger and some patience worked...

I did not feed the wire into the grommet, but through the grommet ends.. by pulling on the edge of the grommet on the frame side and on the door side.

I was so pissed getting this done, I didnt have the patience to take digi pictures, I'll "reenact" it later and re-do it with some photos.

Gawd.. the stock wires indeed are thin and pitiful. 14gauge all the way baby!
