Ooops! Lost my map for my instruments!

I have a 1981 Jeep CJ7 that I pulled the dash out to change out the guages, lights, and just clean up. As I took each wire off, I drew on a paper exactly where it went and also drew how all of the wires hook up to the wiper switch, headlight switch, etc. It was a no brainer until my brain can't find my map! I am having a hard time making sense of wiring diagrams to help me and would hope that someone has maybe done the same thing and still has their map.

If I were you I would go right down to one of the local auto part stores and buy yourself a Haynes shop manual. It has a very detailed wiring schematic in it. Or you could just do a search on here as I believe the Factory Service Manual has been posted on a few occasions.
