Going through the firewall

I recently bought a hood/fender mounted antenna, that I use with my emergency services radio scanner, and installed it on my 2007 Jeep Compass Sport. However, I didn't realise how tough it would be to find a way through the firewall for the antenna's coaxial cable. Has anyone else had to find a way through the firewall for any reason? Does anyone have a any suggestions how I might get through, I don't really want to resort to drilling. The toughest part is that the end connector that needs to go through is larger than your average cable TV coaxial, about 2-3cm diameter.

Thanks!

Re: Going through the firewall

there is a rubber grommet in the left side where the kick panel area is kind of high up there if u poke it through there then go under the hood you will find the wire inside the driver side fender then just route it to wherever your antenna is
