Trailer brake controller wiring?

17629 16
Alright, so I got this T-connector:
Tow Ready - T-Connector Outback, Forester - 118467 — hitchweb

Along with a Universal brake control installation kit:
Reese, Pre-Wired Brake Mate Kit Adapter, 7-Way Flat Pin Connector with Brake Control Wiring Installation Kit — hitchweb

There's a nice wiring diagram here:

And I got the Tekonsha P3:
Tekonsha - Brake Control: "P3" - Inertia Activated; CAP: 2 to 8 Brake Systems - 90195 — hitchweb

I might put the wires through the cabin, as I've seen here:

3 Questions:

(1) Any recommendations/pics of a brake controller mounted in a 2010+ Subaru? I'm wondering about removing the panel below the steering wheel and cutting out a small rectangle to poke the controller face through.

(2) Where do I tap into the brake wiring?

(3) I also got a solenoid to mount under the hood (so I don't drain the battery). Where can I tap into a switched power source?
