Hardwire Radar Detector to Dome Light?

About to install my Passport using a a blend mount and wiring kit. Instead of wiring it around the headliner, down the A-pillar, through the dash, and into the fuse box, I thought I'd take off the dome light and see if there is any suitable spot up there to tap into power. Has anyone here done this before? I've seen plenty of pictures of hardwire setups for Passports and V1s, but none from a blend mount to the dome light in an Evo X.

i tried to wire it like you described with my valentine one, but the dome light gets power when the door was open, not sure if its always a live wire.

I just ran the wire in the front edge of the headliner down the a-pillar under the side interior panels under the seat to the center console cigarette lighter wire Under the shifter. You can tap it into that and still keep the cigarette lighter power open on your center console.
