    How are the tail light wires route from the trunk to the front of the car?

      They have nasty 'connectors' that resemble a six shooter revolver. They are double ended, and the wires are male bullets. Mark each wire, and disconnect the black plastic part. Drop it into hot water with some BAKING SODA mixed into the water,. When it is done bubbling, rinse it, and use some die electric grease in each hole when you put it back together,,,,, On a '55, the main harness should be vinyl wires, but beware of the headlight/ tailight wires because some were still plastic/cloth covered and they are likely very brittle.
