Do you have two speed windshield wipers? That kinda looks like the wire used for three speed windshield wipers.

My new alternator is 75 amps. Should I put an inline fuse in the wire somewhere and what size?

After having some wires short out on the ďalternator sideĒ of the electrical system, I decided to put a 100 amp fuse on the alternator output. Not sure how much good itíll do shruggy

I think Iíve screwed the pooch here guys. Got everything done and connected the battery and the interior lights kept blinking and this thing was making a clicking noise just like the turn signals

I think Iíve put the female end for the battery in the slot for the turn signal 😳. The whole car is getting power like a turn signal blinkin and when I hit the turn signal it stays on!

If my memory serves me correctly, I think the brown is to the wiper washer switch

Yes, I think both sides of the switch have a brown wire connected, so you can't go too far wrong

Why the electrical areas are just important like fuel and brakes? You found it out!

I see you pulled the cluster.  Im assuming you checked the ammeter connections?

Those ammeters are the #1 cause for fires when they sit and the battery is connected.  All the power runs through them.
If you're not disconnecting the battery after every cruise, Id start.  Regardless of if you think its fixed.
I run the volt instead and still disconnect batty.

Old days of acid reproduction batties and your issue would make the batty spew outta the vent holes in the caps ruining drivers side engine panel paint.  DAMHIK, happened 2 or 3 times with my other Charger.

You can.  Then once the connection is made wipe off excess and use in next slot?

Thanks.  I wanna do a 6 year maintenance on my hot rod, lol.  I planned on starting at bulkhead and crs what to use.

My GV OD keeps popping fuses.  My dash wiring is spaghetti from PO so Im clueless where to start?  Id rather pull the dash, replace core & harness all at once. Im running a big stereo with factory wiring, smh. 
No sense in replacing alternator.

If you find heavy oxidation vinegar with salt added will clean if soaked. Just be sure to flush very well or it will continue to attack. I put a sprayer on a bottle of 70% alcohol to flush.
