Need help identifying wires

I am installing new factory fit wiring in my 69 camaro. I came across an orange wire with a metal hook. It is near the ash tray location. Anybody know what this wire goes to. Also, in the same locating there is an orange wire with a plug, it resembles an "L". I hope that made sense. Where does this wire go.

Re: Need help identifying wires

The L plug is for cigarette lighter. Its hot all the time to its covered so as not to short out if tucked under the dash not in use. The other orange wire I think is the Glove box light option wire. Jim..former owner of a 69RS-LM1 350/255 - 700r

They also had an ashtray light option as well on some Camaros. I'm not sure of what type of connector was used for the ashtray light. Otherwise as Jim said....the orange wire with the hook is for the glove box light.
