Unhappy '72 Safari Interior Ceiling Fixtures

Help! The (idiot) PO of my baby had the nerve to remove the original fixtures from the ceiling. (They're the rectangular ones that go over the ceiling vents.) I was lucky enough to find replacements on e-bay, but am now facing the dilemma of how to hook them up (these seem to be a little more complex than my rudimentary wiring skills can deal with).
There are wires everywhere and I keep popping fuses trying to get the right combo. Anyone know how these are wired?

I could take a picture of one of mine later today, if that will help.

Edited to add: This might be a good opportunity for you to replace the original lights with low voltage LEDs. Less drain on the battery than the original bulbs.

Well after about 6 blown fuses, I finally figured it out. Thanks for the kind offer! I considered the LED's but have found out I don't run without shore power very often to warrant the investment as of yet...

P.S. Your labs are beautiful!

Thank you. They're very spoiled.

Let me know if you need pictures of anything from the 1972 model year and I'll be more than happy to help out.
