Horn wiring again

From my search of the archives it seems like a lot of people have had horn issues in the past. I am a noob so please pardon any stupid questions. I recently purchased a 1968 ss350 and am trying to fix some minor issues the previous owner left me to deal with. There was an aftermarket steering wheel installed and apparently he must have had some horn issues because he competely removed the black wire for the horn ground from the steering column. I bought a new turn signal mechanism, have installed it and now I notice that the black wire was also cut from the plug coming from the firewall as well. So my question is, what is the route of the black wire from the horn relay, up the steering column to the plug?
I know my horn and relay are good because I have tested them by grounding them at the relay. I am just not sure where the black wire leaving the relay going to the steering wheel should go.
I have read on older posts about a rag joint ground?
Any ideas? I can post some pics if that would help.

Re: Horn wiring again

Black wire from the relay to the firewall connector, lower right corner, I believe, through the harness via the curved connector on the column and to the horn button if std interior or buttons if Deluxe interiors.

Rag joints have a strap from one bolt to its nut on the other side of the joint.

Re: Horn wiring again

Thanks so much for your help. So it sounds like I just need to follow the wire find out where it was cut and splice in a wire to the curved connector?
