Auto Meter Tach Wiring... Need some help.

So I'm getting ready to install a 5" Auto Meter tach in my 91 GT and I have a question. Where do I tie in the White wire at? I know the black is ground, the green goes to the coil and the red goes to 12v power source but I don't know where to hook the white one. I seem a diagram where us says to hook it to 12v dash lighting but where is that? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

Ok, is there a wire that comes down from it under the dash that I can tie into or do I need to take it all apart?

Well I ended up tying the white wires into the illumination wire for the radio and it worked just fine.
