Power trunk, electric rear window glass, and rear speaker wiring

Hi.

I am reassembling a 1972 Hurst/Olds. It has been apart since 1992.

I removed an electric rear window (the one with the wire grid on the glass), a power trunk, and a rear blue speaker wire from a parts car about 20 years ago and did not take pictures of how the wiring was run especially where it all travels through the rear seat back and down along the floorboard. I also can't find a picture of how that main wire travels down the left side of the trunk in that gutter that is welded to the trunk ledge.

I have paged through my assembly manual in its entirety and have either missed it or I am missing those pages that tell me the routing of those wires for all those accessories.

Can anybody post any pictures of this wiring correctly installed on original cars or diagrams showing where those wires go?

Thank you.

The rear speaker and power trunk wire were routed in that little gutter ( Mirror image of the driver side) from the passenger side front foot well back under the front and rear seat into the trunk.

Thank you. This is exactly what I was looking for. My dads 72 Hurst rear speaker wire travels through that same opening in the rear seat lean back hole, but he does not have power trunk. . This makes sense. I'll bet the rear speaker wire and the trunk wire traveled together. They wind up coming out the same place in the front, out of the top edge of carpet below inside HVAC box on my 72 convertible. I just did not know where it exited the trunk area on a hardtop.

Thank you again for the pictures. This is very helpful.
