Stupid wiring question

I'm trying to reinstall the stereo that one of the POs removed from my 86 Camaro. And I can't find any wiring for the B-pillar 6x9 speakers in the body.

Does anybody know where these wires are supposed to run?

I assume I will have to run new rear speaker wire down the door sills but if it might be tucked away somewhere I'd live to know where to look.

Thanks,
Ian

Re: Stupid wiring question

The factory rear speaker wires are in the harness that runs down the passenger side of the interior.

The attachment is from my 1987 FSM.

Whoa, that's awesome! I need to get a service manual. Is yours a digital version or paper?

Thanks!

It's a digital version.

I got it here: http://www.autobooksbishko.com/index.html

You can go to Rock Auto and find a digital version there as well.

I didn't say it was, but YOU said "You can go to Rock Auto and find a digital version there as well." and I am wondering where that is.
