You have 2 options.
First is remove the Ariel and feed the wires down the A Pillar and then pick them up under the right hand side of the dashboard.
Second option is the one I took and that was to drill a 5mm hole in the roof and them deal it with silkaflex, then run the cable under the headlining and down the inside A pillar trim and under the dash

I then used 2 relays to control the lights (outside pair and inside pair)

Later though I replaced the roof rack and lights completely with a dedicated light pod. But kept the wiring.
The hole in the roof being covered by the pod itself
