Where to tap for gauge dimmer wire?

I am looking for an easily-accessible wire to tap into for my VLS Revel gauges' dimmer wire (orange wire) underneath the driver's side dash. Does anyone have any suggestions? I searched the forums, but couldn't find anything besides the dimmer switch by the TCS module; however it's tucked way up under the dash and ideally I'd like something a little more accessible.

Where are you placing your gauges? I made use of the OEM location and took power from the cigarette lighter. Its got enough juice to power the gauges and phone chargers.

My gauges are located in a custom A-pillar mount; I could run behind the stereo, but was hoping to find something a little closer to the A-pillar. However, I ran an excessive amount of wire from the dimmers, so if I have to snake it somewhere a little further I have plenty of wire to work with (it is capped off for now).

I am new here and new to this car, but did you look at the electrical diagrams available through this post?

Specifically, the "EM BK 2013.zip" file.

I'm going to tap into the dimmer wire switch I think; @Gaijinn , I hear you! But if there's a wire, I'm going to run it! Lol... looked at the FSM and think I verified I found my wire!
