    So I've been trying to find the "thin profile blade connector mentioned in the alternative "non splice" fog light anytime mod thread found here but am having serious trouble sourcing it. I've googled thin profile blade connector but have found nothing. I know it's basically a connector used in a HU harness, but can't seem to find somewhere that would sell me just one.

    If any knows a different name for the product or where to find one (in Canada) let me know. I'd really like to perform this mod.

    Thanks.

    Have you tried going to or calling an autoparts store, or a place the sells and installs stereos?

    Radio Shack in NS?? Usually they are not available to buy in only a quantity of one. Radio Shack has them in packages of 10. 5 male and 5 female connectors.

    So I've still had no luck locating one of these connectors. Does anyone know of another name they may go by other than "thin profile blade connector"? Any help is appreciated. I really want to do this mod.
