you first want to mount the tach brackets where u want them. then you run your ground wire (black) and coil wire (green) through the firewall(there should be a stock hole in the firewall behind the glovebox). then you want to run ur power (red) and tach illumination(white) to your fuse box. from there u should be able to do it but the white wire goes to your headlight fuse or u will have to look at that light all through the day where as if u run it to the headlight fuse, it will only come on when u turn on ur headlights. have fun and enjoy

From what I remember, it should be the negative wire coming from your ignition coil.
