Wiring Help - Diagrams incomplete

I need some help with the wiring on my system. I am hopeful that some of you who understand wiring will tell me I’m ok, or what to fix.

I am completely ignorant, but dived into this frame off rebuild project anyway - how else do you learn?

I have an M38A1, converted to 12v - still has a generator, generator regulator, original gauges (incl Ammeter), and now a key with separate start button. I have referred to numerous wiring diagrams that solve my individual problems, but not address my whole problem. Would some of you in the know, take a look at my diagram and let me know if I am going to burn my jeep up.

I think I have the lights/taillights and the gauges (other than the ammeter) figured out. It’s the ignition, fuses, etc that are causing me concern.

Thanks for your help,

New diagram with a fix or two (I think)

I think I missed the mark on a few things. A little more research has gotten me this far.

I thought about doing the 6VDC to 12VDC once, figured what I'd do to make it all simpler was... build a 6Volt regulator circuit that would carry the amperage easily.. with a 12VDC input.. the use the output to a fuse panel for 6volt items, and another fuse panel to the 12V input side for all the 12 volt items.. Ground is the same, so I thought that would simplify the operation.. anyway, wound up converting everything to 12v and tossed the 6v stuff.. but that makes more sense to me than resistors and such.. basically the same as a real good batter charger, except on the main transformer it has 12vdc primary's..
I want to die in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like the passengers in his JEEP!...
