Exclamation Wiring

I'm not sure if this is the right section. But I'm kinda in a bind. I am trying to hook up my gauge and the kit came with a power wire with the constant 12, ignition 12, ground, and illumination in a weak 1 foot strand. Is there somewhere I can tap into behind the instrument cluster (possibly the light switch) that would power this? If so, can anyone let me know which wires to use so that I'm not shorting anything out. Thanks.

PS: Kinda need the info asap please.

I got 12V ign switched and dimmer from behind the head light switch. I ran ground to the ground bolts by the under dash fuse box.

Sorry, I don't remember which wires I used. I used a multi meter to find the right ones. I'm thinking one of them was lt blue/red, the other may have been brown/??.

I THINK that the lt blue/red was ign switched 12V. The other would have been dimmer.

I'd double check it before you go splicing into anything though. I was a while ago and I've been into a few beers this evening.
