My plan was to wire it into the running top lights, however it appears that the running light is grounded using a bracket and the hot wire is brittle with no give and little excess wire. Any ideas on how to mount this camera without running a lot of wire? Any ideas appreciated, newb here!

If you are afraid of harming the wire, do you think you could drill a hole in the light housing and solder onto the light contacts directly?
