Adding additional 12v power, rear

Need to add two more 12v power ports and maybe another usb charge power in the rear of the WK2 - is there a power distribution block to draw from, or am I better off running direct leads from the engine compartment? I should add that I want to put the power ports on the drivers side rear, opposite of the current location(passenger side rear). Looking for suggestions where to draw power? Thanks in advance.

Draw it from the battery of the car which just embedded itself in your trunk.

Sorry... bad gag. I'd pull power direct from the battery via an appropriate fuse. I've had all of the rear trims off and there's nothing good to hook into back there.

Cheers,
Steve

Thanks Steve! Project on the back burner for now, but it will be a future. Had all the rear trim off too - nothing there. I was ordering 12v receptacles from Australia, guess I can wait on that too.
