    Where might I find the "pigtails" that go from my taillight harness to the bulb sockets? Mine are open/frayed/scary looking. Also looking for a few extra of those little copper contacts that go on the wire's end (that the two bumps on the bulb contact when seated). Thanks.

    Any auto parts store! Buy some wire and some of the crimp-on "bullet" connectors as well as a good pair of crimpers and make them yourself![:0][^]

      The contacts inside the lamp socket, (buttons), are available from Rhode Island Wire @: .
      They have springs and washers, too; and sell the original color coded wire by the foot.
