does anyone have the parts # for weather pack connectors for headlights/turn/brakes or should I just buy the kit from replicaparts.com?
and should I be looking for 3 pin, 4 pin, or both?

I get my Delphi connectors from theelectricaldepot.com. Decent prices and has lots of options when it comes to connectors.

thanks. from what i'm understanding, i'll need 2 4pin connectors for the headlights, and 6 3pin connectors for the turn/brake lights, correct?

ok. after pricing individual pieces from theelectricaldepot, replicaparts pack is actually cheaper.

Did you see that when you click on the pack that it suggest that you get the tool with it.

Its $120 used. With the ability to return it for a $100 refund.

Eugene,
Not correct. You'll use a total of 8 three pin connectors for all.

Headlights:
---High
---Low
---Ground

Front marker lamps:
---Low element (parking lights)
---High element (turn signal)
---Ground

Rear upper lamps:
---Low element (tail lights)
---High element (brake lights)
---Ground

Rear lower lamps:
---Low element (tail lights)
---High element (turn signal)
---Ground

Tool and weather pack kit.
but i'd still need to buy additional male/female terminals, as the kit only contains 1 3pin set of terminals.
i think that Mike Everson's package is still the most reasonable one at this time.

thanks everyone.
it seems like unless you're ordering in bulk, it's a better deal to order from Mike.
male/female housings are around $2 for a pair, terminals are $0.40 a piece, and seals are $0.25 a piece.
for 8 pairs of housings (3pin), 48 terminals, and 48 seals you're paying way more than the $30 mike charges.

I bought a whole kit from somewhere with a good tool. I used it for the build and for several other projects since. Remember, building your car is also a good excuse for increasing your tool inventory!

Fyi Jeff, Mike sends 4 pin connectors meant to be used for the headlights. He says this prevents confusing the headlight and turn signal wires.

Looks very similar to the one I bought with an orientation attachment.
