Default CHT EGT And Firewall penetration

1. Does anyone have any suggestions or pictures of how they ran the CHT and EGT wires? I am struggling with going over or under the pipes and where and how the wires were held away from them. I know they are protected with the metal sheathing but any pictures would be helpful. Also my firewall is getting real crowded;
2. does the hole for the passage of the engine monitor wires need to be below the front storage shelf or are people bringing wires through there.

Thanks ....

You can check out my site to see how I routed things fwf. I have an injected angle valve with inverted oil so there is plenty going on. I made 2 runs through the firewall to keep the noisy wires away from the sensors. Both through the far left side of the fwd bagg along the top.

Mine is a -6A so can't help with second question but I have pictures of routing I used for CHT and EGT wires in the engine area posted at link below. These are prior to 1st flight pictures so I made some changes since then, in particular with change in ignition harnesses and securing those to the valve covers but the EGT and CHT wiring is still routed pretty close to as shown and is working fine at close to 250 hours.
