You can run the wires through the same hole that the rear light wiring comes through, if you like.
I just spoke to Seralicious who said there is a good amount of room behind the panels, its just that I may have to drill a hole to feed the wiring through and fit a rubber bung on it. If I drill though the body, is it best to seal the cut with some kind of paint or protectant?
It's going to be connected to the light wiring at some point anyway, I presume.
The way I did it, I poked the wires into the back of the connector block inside the boot and secured with tape. I'm sure there are better ways though. I can't recall if I managed to get the original grommet back in place.

It's pretty dry after 12 hours, but for it to be compleatly set this particular product suggests 72, I'm sure diferent products will have diferent formulations and setting times.
hahaha 72 hours for the silicon to dry?? uhohh.. thats not good for me esp when i only have one piece of the logo
Problem will be with my plans above, I'm going to have a minimum of 5 wires to feed through
I'm sure there are better ways though.

I've got my block of acrylic and drilled holes in it today, four sets of four, each angled to point roughly towards the center of where each letter is going to be (5cm apart or so). There are still lighter spots of colour, but after sanding the rear of the material (cut on an angle) things seam to be pretty reasonable, I Now need to get some kind of paint to prevent light leaking out the sides, so maybe something that can reflect it back might prove to be worthwhile, maybe some kind of silver or chrome paint, maybe even just white. but at the moment there is alot of light escaping.
The below photo was before sanding it.

I'd take a another photo, but maybe I'll wait till I get more of the lights in now
