Fog lights pigtails

When I disassembled the car for paint I noticed that the pigtails on my fog lights were missing. Iím not sure how that happened or why someone would cut them, but with that in mind, a vendor on eBay sells a repair kit but it doesnít seem to include the actual metal pigtails. Looking through my NPD catalog it looks like they have one but the disclaimer is a bit odd. What do you guys recommend? I forgot to mention that I have Lucas fog lights. Any help is greatly appreciated!

The correct wiring is the early with the small black grommet. You need to look at your lights and see if you have a small or large hole. There are other differences as well. Here is a picture of both styles.

I am not sure of what you meant by metal pig tails.

The NPD ones look correct but as Marty said you need to know which one fits your housings. The grommet holes in the base of the housings are different depending on which grommet was used. Can you post a photo?

The interiors of the housings are also different.

Sorry, I got caught up with some other stuff and just got around to taking the pictures of the lights. Now that I have the car back, I ran into another issue. Iím unsure how to connect the fog lights. I was able to pick up a real nice pair of lights from a fellow member but donít see how I can connect them. Below are pics of the original lights and my current dilema.

I replaced the headlight harness on my CS. Here are photos of the receptacles for the fog lights.
