69 camaro ignition switch loses power, pics.......

hello and thanks in advance for hopefully some ideas.
I have a 69 camaro, was a AT car swapped over to 4 speed. so the wiring is AT type, the steering column was just replaced by me, the car ran fine before and all I have done was unplug the column and replaced it. the car has power to the red wire on right half of ignition switch. I believe a wire may be missing or something switch wiring related. I assume the red power wire on the right side is the only power in wire? dont know. the top left connector wire is dark green and pigtailed in because the connector was in poor condition. that wire appears to be in corrrect location. can anyone looking at this help me understand where starter power is being lost. I know the switch is good, its adjusted right, when I turn to start position the floor lights dim a bit so i believe its switching. I just have no power out of the purple wires to the starter.

also, last pic. the red and green wires above the fuse box. the red one jumps off the fusebox, any idea what & where the green one goes? its a 2 wire section above the fusebox.
