Eurohangers for Metal Frames

I just read the posts dealing with the sealing of a metal frame and they made me want to ask this question ---- I use the method of filling the gap in with extra foamcore and matboard. Usually using a piece of black matboard as the last piece --- to make it look nice. The problem with doing this is the fact that I do not have much room to run the wire through my eurohangers. So, should I apply the wire before filling in with foamcore and matboard, or is there something out there other than eurohangers for metal frames? Thoughts appreciated.
Good suggestion David,

Or Jason, back with the black as you do now, but instead of using full sheets as fillers under the black backer, put 1/2" strips between the black backer and the metal rabbet back. Essentially, use mat and/or foam strips were others might have used spring clips.

Also, if you look in a number of catalogs, you can find hangers that have "d-rings" attached to them which will probably give you more "room" to attach the wire.
