Audio stuff

Anyone done an audio upgrade and have the old harness bits lying around? I'm looking for a bunch of the older connections:

The two-pin DIN speaker plug - the one that goes into the head unit. It has one flat and one round pin. I need 8 of them.

The power harness that fits into the back of the older head units. Pre-90, I think. I need one.

The newer harness, for the E32/E34/E36 the single square-ish plug. I need one.

The antenna connector for the back of the head unit (maybe someone cut one of them out).

Why? You ask. A bit of retro-radio-refit. A buddy of mine has an '85 E24 that will be eligible for BC Vintage designation, but they're very strict on original equipment, so I'm giving him an old '80s head unit. Plus I have a period Becker and a Blaupunkt that I want to put in my E24 and E28 respectively. I tend to not need more than something that'll play AM/FM to my tin ear, and an FM modulator fitted to the antenna connection will serve to attach my wife's I-Pod.

I know you can get the newer harness (square one) at best buy for $15.
