Nice setup @Tourist in MSN. Personally I prefer running the wires inside the frame as much as possible to prevent any risk of snagging and use SON coaxial couplers on all the bits in between. I like running the light inside the rolled edge of the fender as well but recently I ran into an issue where the wheel was rubbing against the fender but I had to continue. The end result was that I actually heated the fender enough that the cable melted inside the rolled edge. Which, as you can imagine, caused a short in the rear light.

Next time I'm trying the glue. Crimping a rolled edge is hard to do invisibly and nearly impossible if you want to paint the fender.
