Default Steering column gauge pod power source

Is there a generally used spot to grab power for a steering column gauge pod? I'm mounting mine, have the steering wheel off as well as the kick panel. There are a lot of wires under there. Is there a well-known location people are grabbing power for the gauges?
Thanks!
Joe

Comb connector box. (Almost) any color wire you need. Just push in a new spade connector.

I use the wires directly from the ignition tumbler. Red for + at all times, green for + in run and start.
