Small update. I went to a electronics place and they checked the ground and the live wire and it appears as if everything is wired correctly. They rebuild radios as well but they said mine was so corroded that it wasn't rebuildable. I've taken off the wood paneling in the front because I found a professional carpenter that is going to try to refinish it for me this week. I used the guide here Mercedes 108 Wood Removal - Jaime Kopchinski and it was pretty accurate. The overhead lights just kinda decided to snap back in without any extra added things. Its weird but I'm not going to complain. Still need to work on the center console with the shift indicator and the odometer wheels.
