If you're thru the hole in the inner fender wall, you're into the 
cabin. The hole comes in quite high under the dash, so you may need 
to remove the fuse box to see it, and pull it on in.

BTW, you need a grommet around antenna wire to seal that opening once 
you've removed the rubber plug that was there. Otherwise, you won't 
believe the amount of water that wheel spray will pump into the cabin 
when you drive in the rain. (And everyone drives in the rain 
eventually.) The antenna should have come with a sealing grommet for 
this purpose.
