Default JDM sidemarkers - Wiring Problem

So I bought a set of new sidemarkers for my EG. Problem is that they never came with any sockets or plugs like the used ones normally come with. Question is for anyone who has installed new side markers, what did you use to wire these in. I've thought of soldering wire directly to the prongs in the side marker but does anybody have any other ideas? I've gone to local hardware stores to look for a harness that will work but haven't had any luck. As for wiring, what gage is best to go with? I've tried searching but there was nothing regarding this topic. Thanks again for any help

just use two insulated female spade terminals.
this what the terminal looks like:


but get the fully insulated kind to prevent shorting since they'll be right next to each other:

or just get some shrink tubing that works wonders

Thanks for the ideas. I was just at Home Depot and I was thinking of using the spade connectors but I was worried about shorting out the line. I didn't know they had insulated female spade connectors. I was also thinking of using shrink wrap but I wasn't too how well it would hold up. Thanks again for the ideas
