You could also try Vintage Wiring Harness, they're very good as well.
I've looked at their FE FC wiring harness and it is really nice.
The hardest bit to get is the rubber sleeve which slides on the back of the globe holder to keep water out.

Thanks Ken, I will have a look that way.

Can't say Deano, the car isn't finished yet so it has bugs from joining two harnesses together, lots of headaches to come... But that's half the fun. This car has fought every step of the way, but bit by bit we are getting there.

Thanks. It is pretty much up to personal taste but for me they look too big but it's good to experiment so you can satisfy any niggling voices in your head. I'm more confused as every as to what I will do but I'm thinking I will go older style which may limit me to hq brakes. Love the paint. 😻

Not Happy!

Phone call today from a second electroplater stating that the perfect painted headlight surrounds should have been just sanded and then chromed we put in the acid bath for too long and have stuffed them... along with the surround sections on the grill and a tail light surround.
So 5 pieces of good stuff that i had I now need to find again.
The only good news was that the set of bumperettes the first guy said were stuffed have come back finished for $100 each.
Rant over for now... grrr

I think you took that very well. Hope they help out with the cost of replacement parts.

Hmmm. Sounds like they were stripping them as if they had chrome. A paint stripper would have been the go. If you need anything in more of a hurry, I could sent you the bits and that way if u get stuck you can get it together and you can then find parts at your leisure and give back to me later of similar condition. See how u go.
