[Turn Signal Mirrors] Which wires to splice into?

I'm in the process of installing turn signal mirrors, and can't figure out which wires to splice into. For the drivers side I spliced into a green/orange wire under the dash, when I grounded it the turn signal mirror doesn't flash with the turn signal, it just stays lit all the time.

Does anyone have pics of the wires that you need to splice?

Thanks

Here's what I did...

The ground, I put a ring terminal and utilized one of the mirror mounting studs.

For the power, I previously performed the "turn signal mod" that makes the corner lamp alternate with the turnsignal.....I simply routed the power wires for the mirror signals through the firewall, and connected them to the "jumper" wire on the "turn signal mod". Left to the left, and right to the right.

Hope i helped.

For the drivers side it was a green with a white stripe, and for the passenger it was a white with a blue stripe. The directions tell you to splice into the wrong wires, like orange/brown or something like that!
