Electrical Wiring On A Long Range Model 3

I was thinking of purchasing this plate hider for use at local car show: Electric Hide-Away License Plate Frame Kit

According to the installation instructions, One must:
  • Connect the red wire to a good 12V source;
  • Connect the orange wire to a switched ignition 12V source; and
  • Connect the green wire to a good ground.
Where can One find these points on the Model 3, long range version?

Thanks in advance.

You might want to know.
I've used two of the manual version. Both were installed on my first S. When I bumped one of those parking lot cigars in the middle of the parking lots, it ripped the hide-n-show off. Both times.
And my friend had the electric version on his Vette. He said he could not keep the mud out of the motor and rain puddles just flooded the motor too. Worked a while, then quit. Then he'd clean it and it worked a while again.

Best of luck to you. I hope its diff than my luck with one.
