Connect the black wire from the A pillar to the black wire that is currently taped.

Dome lights should now work barring any other problems in the wiring to them.
Haven't located wires coming down from A pillar. Not sure where the wires would exit as I have a number of holes with wires coming through. Some have over spray, some are covered and are not black or brown. Is there a pic. I can reference as to where the wires should exit from?
I took the electrical tape off the wires and the ends look like factory terminal spade connectors.

As I have a targa, mine is different.
Maybe someone with a coupe can post a photo of where the wires exit the A pillar through the grommet for you.
The Factory .250 connectors you unwrapped are what you need to match up to the pillar ones.

Should be 2 wires in a black vinyl sheath.
Where is the green one in the bottom photo going? (Top back area headed up above dash)
Is it loose in the fender well?
Lots of paint on it.

Timmy, you're a genius. Thanks for pointing out the possible solution.
That wire was tucked away possibly during reassembly after painting.
Plugged into the dome light and voila I have a working light.
All that is left is the driver's side dome light spring.
Thanks guys for the help.

Yeah, I know, I didn't want to be one of those. I appreciate the help I get here that the least I can do is to follow up. I know I will be asking more questions in the future so I feel its important to show my appreciation.
