I was trying to repair some of these taillight cards on a Brava which are similar to the Spider. Same design, just shaped different. I can't remember the exact reason why I started this but I think the copper strips that the white connectors plug into were separating from the circuit board. I tried using something like super glue but they were too badly mangled. The instrument cluster on my 68 Ford uses the same design!

My initial plan was to solder new wires directly to the pop rivets on the bulb sockets. Then I was going to cut off the old nylon gang connectors and use one of those trailer connectors.

In the meantime I mentioned this on the Forum and someone just so happened to have a set of NOS tail light cards for a Brava and sold them to me at a good price. So I ended up scrapping my original plan.
