Hi Bob,

The upgraded sockets are described by Bob Danielson here:

So I contacted 'bluechips2001' and asked about availability.
Here's his reply:

   "Hello Lee, Sorry but the UK mfg. of those sockets went
    out of business and we were not able to find a quality
    replacement. Thanks for the inquiry, Joe"

So ... bummer, I thought those were a great upgrade. I have not found another
useful source. The original-style holders are available from Moss and TRF:


Happy motoring!
