Help with instrument lights!!!

Ok here's the problem. With the headlights/interior lights selected on I get good headlights, but no console lights (shifter, fuel, clock, oil press. etc). I also dont get any speedo or tach lights in the carrier bezel.

To add to the confusion, when the lights are selected on, both turn signal lights on the dash are lit with steady light. I can select a left turn, right turn, and hazard, and the indicator lights blink as advertised. But when no turn signal is selected, both lights just stay illuminated. Also, the high beam indicator (red light at top of dash carrier bezel) does not light up.

Haven't had a chance to really dig and troubleshoot, but I did look at the fuse panel and nothing seems blown there.

Any help would be great!!

p.s. This is all on a 67 coupe with standard interior

May have figured it out from another post, there's a metal "strip" that goes from the high beam indicator and grounds to the metal on the dash carrier. I'll dig in there to see if it's connected.
