Question wiring nightmare

just to say this is my first time on this site, actually just found it tonight, seems to be a good place to hang out. well i have a 77' thats been bored and stroked that i am doing a frame up on right now, i was wondering if anybody had a schematic for the most bare bones wiring i could do. i am eliminating all turn signals and idiot lights, all i will have is a head light and tail/brake light along with all the coils, starter etc...

When it comes to wirin keep one thing in mind K.I.S.S. keep it simple silly. head to your local NAPA or favorite auto dealer get as many different colored wires ya can then head to a car salvage get some more odd color wires out of a protected harness and let the wiring commence. Try crimp conections over soldering, soldering makes a hard spot in the wire and over the years that is probably what will give ya greif. and lots of heat shrink tubing and tape avoid pacing wires between two objects. ROCK ON
