What type of pin does the instrument cluster plug use?

It's a sprung connector, makes contact with a flexible plastic circuit board.

The plastic portion of the plug I don't believe so, but I'm not 100% sure. The terminals that snap into place I'm sure are available, that style was used in a few '80s GM platforms.

Ok thanks. I'm switching to aftermarket gauges and thought I would run my fuel sending unit and light indicators off the stock wiring harness but didn't want to cut it up so wanted to get some of those pins to crimp a wire into the cluster wires and still be able to plug my factory cluster back up if I ever decide to. Was hoping I could buy them instead of constantly stabbing myself with a pick trying to separate the one on it.
