Good afternoon all, 
First thanks for the help with the unknown wire and plug on previous issue.  

Now, trying to assemble dash and wanted to install a radio, and what do I find? 

Well found all the speaker wires - no problem, found a grey and a black wire capped off which I confirmed has 12v when light switch is selected on.  There is a yellow and orange that come from the antenna relay but they go straight to a wrapped bundle - they they both have electrical splices on them.   

There is no plug from previous radio that is 12v power source or ground, be it switched power or direct power. 

My question is this:  Where do I get the 12v for the radio as well as the ground, where do i connect the radio to the power antenna, as it seems previous owner went a little crazy with wiring and is leading me to look very carefully at all connections.   

Does anyone have a good wire print for this circuit?

Thanks again.

Here is a photo of center console, and yellow and orange spliced wires. I am now going to see what type of power I have on those wires.Radio
