69 Firebird Wiring Woes

Just started work on a 69 coupe I picked up that needs a lot of work. I am learning a lot as I go, but I just don't have all the resources yet. The steering column has been gutted and the ignition cylinder is out,
so when I got the car, it was being started by moving the ignition switch with a screwdriver, and the ignition coil is wired with a toggle "kill" switch. My problem is now I don't know where the orignial hookup points for the coil were. The little wiring diagram I have seen seems to say that the black/pink wire is the B+ to the coil, but I can't seem to find where the negative side of the coil goes to. Any help would be appreciated. (Next up, all the lights...)

Painless wiring may be able to help you. Costly, but they do have full wiring harnesses, and accessories.

I've seen Painless' stuff before, but $500 for a harness is a bit out of my league right now. I have a lot of other problems, I mean projects, to fix first. But I have seen a few other "universal" kits from other companies like EZ2Wire and Kwik Wire with anywhere from 8 to 26 circuits in the $100-$200 price range. So how many circuits would the 'Bird need? Off the top of my head, I'm thinking 10-12 range (number of fuses I can imaigine the car has now, since I'm nowhere near it), but I'm hoping someone with more automotive electronics experience knows more than I on the subject.

    You need to find a copy of a wiring diagram from a factory service manual. Try your local libraries. If that fails try Ebay.
