Question about taillight wiring on a 65

So my taillight plugs are getting a little wonky & dry rotted and don't stay put very well anymore. I purchased a new set of pigtails only to find that my current setup doesn't have the bullet style connectors--they're hardwired into the harness. Is this normal for a 65? I guess I can cut and splice in the new ones or get some female bullet connectors and install them that way. Thoughts?

i've seen those pig tail replacements with male bullet connectors and sadly even my new repro OEM wiring harness have the pig tails integrated to the main harness.

It does not matter what accepted method you use to connect the new wires to the old harness, whether it be to install the correct mating bullets on the harness, cut the bullets off and use butt splices, solder splice with heat shrink, etc... Pick the one method that works for you.

I went ahead and put on new bullet connectors and then sealed with heat shrink tubing.
