DRL (Daytime Running Light) Wiring

So, I'm gonna tackle the LED DRL installation on my 2003 S, and I've amassed all the stuff I believe will be needed to sorta kinda make my 986 look newer :-)

My question is this, for anyone who has done this install, or who has installed any type of light assembly from the front bumper inward, what is the best line of action for wiring?

I've looked up/over/under/around the front fascia, but it seems pretty damn airtight (as it should be, I guess).

My point of origin will be the middle vent of the right and left air intake (DRLs with brackets), then somehow getting the wiring into the front trunk, where it will meet up with a automatic on/off relay that goes directly to the battery.

Powering it will be cake - but running the wiring install is what has me baffled. Ive seen several other posts on here that don't refer to "how they did it", or the description seems somewhat cryptic.

Anyone have ideas on this, and ideally, anyone have pics? (please?!?!) I think this information could be a good baseline standard for many, many projects.

For the factory look....

you'll then be able to run your low beams any time the engine is running, total cost a buck or two, tops. Super easy, and it looks factory too.

I appreciate that information - inexpensive solutions are my favorite!
