Question '79 Chief Wiring Help for $$ in Northern VA

Gents
I acquired a 79 Chief a while back and due to the electrical issues it hasn't moved. I made the move for a full rewire kit from BJ's and ordered new gauges from Speedhut (ETA end of June) to compensate for a few other issues. I figured wiring up a couple CJ's in my time this should be a piece of cake. Two months later I am still lost. The engine compartment is done but the dash is beating me bad. I have gone over the schematics a hundred times but I just cant get it.
Basically I am hoping someone in the area who has a knowledge base in wiring this thing would be able to help me out for financial gain. Any help from you intelligent Jeep pros would be greatly appreciated.

Will beer and food sweeten the deal?

Sorry, I'm nowhere close. People are pretty patient here. Might want to just post questions step-by-step, you might get answers. Pics always help.

Where are you in northern virginia? I would be willing to lend a hand just for beer and pizza. My biggest problem is time. With three children, and a full time and caring for my ill grandmother I barely have time to drink a soda. If I can spare any time I would be happy to lend a hand. I am periodically in the pentagon city area. If you are near there maybe there is a remote chance we could get together.

Additionally, as the others have said, post some pics, maybe a get together is not necessary. Lots of times members here are able to help but with no visuals it is not easy.
