Anyone ever install corner strobe lights in their vehicle?

I have a 4 corner Whelen Hide-A-Way strobe light kit that I am getting ready to install on my truck and wondered if anyone had any advice...specifically, here are a few questions:
1) When drilling the 1" hole into your existing vehicle light housing to mount the strobe bulb, did you do anything special...other than using a 1" holesaw (any tricks to not screwing this up and costing myself a lot of money).

2) When running the wiring out of the cab to each corner, did you simply run the wire thru the frame or did you encase the wires in a conduit? The factory supplied wire consists of 3 wires wrapped in a poly coating.

3) Any suggestions on wiring the control switch? The instructions call for an on/off switch wired direct to the battery with a 15 amp fuse and a momentary switch that gets wired to a 12v source(likely the cigarette lighter).

Any advice or thoughts would be great. The actual kit is a Whelen CS650 if that helps.
