glad to hear things are progressing for you jim. my guess on the dome light is somewhere the circuit is going to ground where it isnt supposed to, from a screw through a wire upon reassmbly, like in sill plate area, or it has gone to ground somewhere else. as i'm sure you are aware, the dome light works on the principle of grounding to turn it on. orange wire is hot always, then when the door pin switches "close" by opening the door, wham, theres your ground. same deal with the switch, when its turned all the way to the left it grounds at the switch. so somewhere the orange wire is grounded. my rs had dome light issues before i re did the interior (no dome lite), and it was actually a bad switch, though i would doubt this is your problem if it worked before. as for the lt green wire, thats just the "switch leg" for your back up lites, (it runs back to the back up lites) it should only have 12 volts when the back up lites are on, when the shifter is in reverse. so if your reverse lights work, all is good there, now you just need to trouble shoot that dome light. good luck with it!
