Can anyone recommend a supplier for the bullet terminals used on the headlight wiring?

I couldn’t find my original dip beam looms so bought a pair from Fitchetts.
On initial inspection they look ok, however, the male bullets are too big to plug into the vehicle harness.
Can anyone advise on the correct size bullets required and who stocks them? Can you get the plastic 3 way plug too as the looms came with just 3 loose bullets.

Alternatively I could just chop both parts and wire in a modern watertight plug.

Any ideas or links?

Thanks,

Chris.

I have purchased the three pin plastic connectors from auto sparks but I have to telephone them as they did not have them listed on their web site. This was because they were in short supply at the time but the company were about to have another batch manufactured.

I use 12volt planet, VWP and Autoelectical supplies for most of my wiring needs.
