Alternator Wiring Help, 1986 Mustang 5.0L

I'm taking over the build of a Factory 5 Cobra Mark II that used an '86 Mustang 5.0L as a donar car. The guy swapped from EFI to carb and tossed the wiring harnesses. He purchased a wiring kit from Ron Francis, but it has no connectors and only basic instructions.

I'm trying to connect the alternator to the wiring kit. There are two connectors on the alternator. The first has two heavy gauge wires that solder together into a single wire. I believe this connects to the battery post on the solenoid. A third wire connects to the second connector. That's all for this connector, so I think I'm OK here.

The second connector has a Yellow/White wire and a Green/Black wire. I'm not sure where these connect. I'm also not sure how to hook-up the battery charge light. Any help is greatly appreciated.
