This past week I got a the headlight wiring pigtails I needed from Dave over at 240turbo.com. I was finally ready to get the headlights sorted out. Both lights went to my basement shop where I proceeded to clip out all the parts of the wiring with missing insulation, crimp the new wiring onto the end, and put heat shrink tube over the parts I couldn’t just remove. I reinstalled and, with the help of my son and a heat gun, made sure the head shrink was good and shrunk.
The end result was a pair of North American style headlights that both work and have wiring that isn’t potentially ready to short out in a light rain.
