I recently bought a 1986 Spider Veloce that will surely require parts and access to technical information. Any tips on reliable sources for parts would be appreciated. I just replaced the the license plate light bar and created more trouble. All bulbs in the light bar and center brake light are good. there is good ground and power at the contact plate AND at the pins located on the corner of the trunk lid and the short harness has been replaced. the lights with light with external power to the trunk lid but not with the trunk closed.
any ideas?

welcome to the forum, not my area of expertise but it sounds like the pins in the boot lid aren't touching the plate when the lid is closed, a good test for this is get something like engineers blue put some on the ends of the pins then close the lid, once open you should see the pins contact with the plate.
