If anyone has done this before, what is the best route? And once in the cabin, did you go up the center console or along the door trim?

is the wireing for the stereo?

No actually, for my backup cam. But the wires come down the same side as the battery. I just am not trying to tear apart any panels I don't need to, I hate messing with those covers and pushlocks.

Easiest I can think of is wireless transmitters I have them set up in my car only problem is they will sometime get interference from wireless security cameras.

I don't mean the audio signal alone, I need to send an acessory power wire back to my camera as well as run the RCA cable. I've been poking around, and frankly there is no easy to access place to run the wire which doesn't go near the convertible top hinges.

Interesting didn't know backup cameras have audio, but in the case of the wireless I just tapped power from the backup lights for the transmitter and power from the cigarette lighter for receiver

Sorry I meant video. I chose to run a hard line. I went through the side/floor panel and through the ski pass and up the side of the car.
