Welcome to the forum! Generally speaking, black wires on a Reatta are grounds. You should try to make sure the wires are connected to the terminal they came from orginally. As you can see in the photo below some of the ground wires go to an "Isolated Ground" junction. Those are for the computers, CRT, IPC etc. and they should continue to go to that ground point.

thanks Ronnie.i did trace them to the ground post and figured thats where they would go.i have a parts car(89).its red with tan interior like your pic.its rusted out pretty bad though.anyway i took that wiring harness out of it and problem is most of those wires are all color coded for the grounds so couldnt copy those really

I just assumed the grounds on the '91 are like the ones in the photo but maybe the '91 is different.
