Where can I get replacements for these?

Sorry for the vague forum topic name. I have no idea what they are called. It's the thing in the picture below circled.

It's from the front turn signals of our 69 Camaro. One of the previous owners felt it was a better idea to cut these wires then pull the plug apart (and he cut them a whole 2" from the plug, so it's not like he didn't see it). One of them was cut way too short to splice new wiring on, so we've been looking to replace the end and put a new wire on it so we can splice it back together. I've been to Lowes, Home Depot, Autozone, O'Rilleys, and Radioshack but they all carry the same things and none of them carry this. Unfortunately, the camera focused on the plug and not the actual item in the picture I was wanting to focus on so my apologies about that. It has what my dad is referring to as a "burr" so that when you slide it into the connector, it won't pull out. It's because of that burr that I'm unable to find it anywhere it seems. Anyone know where they sell a pack of those ends so we can redo the turn signal connections?

I would spend a few dollars and replace whole front harness for the lighting...the wiring is 40 years old. It's only a $150 bucks and easy to install.

I replaced every wire harness in my car. I rather be driving then chasing electrical bugs.

Scroll down. Go to the home page for full navigation. If the rest of your harnesses are in a state of disrepair you may want to replace them as stated.

Re: Where can I get replacements for these?

Thanks guys. The rest of the lights work fine it seems so I felt it would be overkill to replace the entire wiring because the front turn signals were cut. Of course, I'll keep it in mind if I start finding a lot of problems with it.
