I have my 3 dials fitted where the centre vents used to be.

Switched live - Ignition barrel with an inline fuse.
Earth - I used the steering column mount.
Dim (if yours has the option when you turn the sidelights on) - I tapped into the wire that illuminates the heater dials.

Any other sensor wires will need to connect up under the bonnet so you will need to find a way through the bulkhead.
