It depends how far you stripped it out; by your comment, if no head nor brake light I would say to check first at the ignition key switch, they're powered from the main 30 amp fuse, loose contact there could be the problem.
I'm including a circuit diagram for you.

I just regrets the things I haven't done.

Raise up on the brake pedal and see if the brake light goes off. Above the brake pedal is the rear brake light switch. Might have to adjust the switch. also check the front brake lever switch. Did you test the headlight from another power source or was it operating at one time?
