Default Needing some electrical help

I just picked up a sweet 86.5 hardtop today, I'm in love with this car. Needs some tlc but thats what they are for. Everything works fine on it, so I thought. My taillights, parking lights, and dash lights are not working. I checked every fuse, all of the are good. Its getting power everywhere. I'm kind of stuck right now as far as what it could be. I either have a wiring issue, or it is the actual headlight switch. I'm not sure which it could be. I'm a mecp certified installer, I deal with electrical all day, but have never actually messed with a headlight swith Thanks in advace.

My bet is it's the switch on the steering column. It's probably loose. I know mine still clicks and works but it's not a very good design that year.

I diddo that. Mine is loose as crap, it barely clicks. Its probably going to go soon. So yea pull that thing apart and see if the lights come on when you engage the switch.

BTW Do your brake lights work?

I bypassed the switch all together and made a new one. The problem wasn't in the switch but in the contact on fuse 8 on the back of the fuse box. I jumped the fuse box and fused it straight through. Its working awesome so far. Thanks for the replies.
