Very impressive stash of parts - looks like you have dismantled at least 7 or 8 GT's is that correct or were there more. I use to really enjoy going to junk yards back in the 80's and 90's and I would always pull a couple of parts that I really did not need, just little stuff, one time there was a shifter shaft with knob just laying on the passanger seat and I purchased it for a couple of dollors and used it to replace mine which was in bad shape, that replacement was this year and the part was in my parts box for at least 25 years or more - wish now and knowing what I now know, that I would have collected more before the car made it's way to the crusher. There was one yard just outside of Winston -Salem, NC that I went to on a number of occasions and I recall the last time that I went the owner told me to get what I wanted as it was going to the crusher next month. So glad that you were able to save so much. Good Job.

First let me say that you did one beautiful job on your GT with more polished aluminum that I've ever seen!
Of the 18 GT's I had I parted out 10 ( 25 to 30 Years ago) and by myself would strip one down in a day. I also had half a dozen Mantas and wagons. Lately I've been dusting some parts off and grouping them for pictures in case I want to sell every thing as a lot.

Those are the rubber boots that cover the terminal socket ends and a bit of the wiring on the front curved lamps
Terry, to add onto what Keith said there are also two more on the R & L license plate light housings on the rear bumpers. To the best of my recollection those are the only four light connectors that are really exposed to the elements. One other note regarding grounds that were notorious for problems on the cars, the ground connection, a 1/4" quick disconnect on the bumper 9is exposed to the elements and over time the ground can become compromised. Just my two cents on grounds.
