Anybody have a pic of the brake light switch wire in a 1969?

I am installing a new harness in a 1969 Camaro and have a couple wires that I can't seem to identify.
They are one ORANGE and one WHITE together with one plug. I have no idea but I think it maybe the brake light switch wire. The only problem is it is all the way over to the PASSENGER SIDE? Thats what is throwing me off. Any pics would be great.
Thanks
Jack

orange and white would be the courtesy light circuit.
No clue what it's doing on the pass side of the car tho. Only way I know to get that combo over there is in a vert or a coupe with the optional lighting, and even then, the wires would terminate with a light bulb socket.

Just happened to have my "head up my dash" tonight, and sure enough, the brake light switch wires are orange and white.

Thanks Jim! I am pretty sure that is it. I think these aftermartket harnesses are sometimes taped up wrong. My brake light switch wire is taped up with the heater box, passenger dome switch and passenger courtesy light wires.
Thanks Again
