Default Installing 110v in-car heater

Nice n' warm up here in Canada in July, however preparing for reality.
I want to install a 110v in-car heater.
My problem - How do I route a cable from engine compartment to interior of car ?
I do not see any obvious holes, grommets, orifaces etc.

If your inside the car, look at the cable that opens the hood. Follow the lever that you pull to open the hood and you'll see that it goes through the firewall through a round black rubber grommet. That hole is big enough to slip a few more wire through to the engine compartment. You have to get down under the dash and look up to see it but it can be accessed without too much trouble.

OK, how about this one. It's the hole with the blue wire (my wire from my AMP) going through it.




The "almost" hole right below it is for a clutch pedal. It's solid metal behind it but smeone could always drill a hole through it.

One thing about a digital camera and high speed internet, I can take a picture, edit it, put it onto Photobucket and have it on the forum in about 5 minutes.

Great advice Crewzin (and picture).
Heater installed and working like a charm.
Now if it'd just cool down a bit.
