Don't try to drop the headliner if you can avoid it. It's a real biatch to get back into place and secured!
I haven't decided on wire size yet. I need to do some more calculations on how much load I'll be drawing.

I will be running wires from the top because my lights will be mounted up high; so the wires will have to come down somewhere.
