Default Oil, temp, amp, fuel gauges, clock, AC and aluminum wheel

Purchased 86 Tin top a couple of months ago and just got it out of the paint shop and trying to determine what works and what doesn't.
1-Temp gauge does not move. Guess one could remove sender and put in water to check ohms but how does one check the meter? What should the ohms check and at what water temp?
2-Fuel gauge does not move. Understand the unit is in the fuel tank. Is there any method to check short of pulling the tank? Is there also a way to test the gauge separate from the sending unit in the tank?
3-Where is the amp gauge? I would guess it is a light and is located adjacent to the turn signal indicators but all that lights that light up along this row in addition to the signals is an occasional sensor and brake indicator light. Should it light up when the key is turned on before starting the engine?
4-Where is the oil pressure gauge or is it a light in the row with the signal light indicators? Should it light up when the key is turned on but before the engine starts?
5-The digital dash clock suddenly stopped without warning. Does anyone know if it has and fuse and where it is located.
6-There is an unconnected loose wire under the hood that may connect to the a/c. Does anyone know what is required to make these units operational?
7-The wheels are aluminum made by Ultra, the Wrangler design. The spare was missing and I would like to locate an inexpensive Ultra to match the others.
Any info would be appreciated.
Thanks

With so many dash problems I wonder if they are getting any power.
Here's a start..


Please let me know where you are if this is not correct.

Thanks for the info.
Really don't know how power I am getting as only been working with it on occasions after getting out of paint shop.
I looked for an explanation of the #'s but did not find any.
I guess 2-8 are lights in the cluster??
#2, lights up,
if #4 is seat belt light, it does not work,
is #5 brake oil and parking brake? What is brake oil? Brake fluid level? This has come on on occasions.
#6 does not work,
#7, oil pressure switch does not work,
#8 is unknown,
Don't know what check relay is.
Haven't checked 4WD light,
Dimmer switch works,
Fuel level does not work,
Water temp does not work.
Can you send me a legend identifying the numbers on the print?

Do all of these leads run thru the fuse box at the lower left corner of the dash? Just wonder if the fuse box has been contaminated from painting or ???

Thanks again.

The loose wire may be just the ac compressor clutch, certainly won't work without it.

Here is the wiring diagram to go with that 1988 workshop manual.
