All electrical stopped working

My friend has a '69 Camaro that has lost all power,, he installed a 1 wire alt. incorrectly(he hooked the wire from the old external regulator alt) he then put the old alt back on the car and it ran fine. One day later he put the 1 wire back on(incorrectly again) and the wiring started to smoke and the hot wire from the battery to the regulator melted. Now the car has no power anywhere(lights,ignition ect....)

I have reinstalled the 1 wire alt correctly and removed regulator but still no power except at starter and alt

what could be wrong

Re: All electrical stopped working

check the fuseable links in the front harness. the fuseable links are black and about 7/8 long on the red power feed wires to the horn relay or votage regulator from the battery (sorry can't remeber which one)
