Good for LED bulbs (edit: also free postage if spending over £1.65, ex vat): https://www.classiccarleds.co.uk/

Good for general items (especially wiring with a colour trace, etc): http://www.vehicle-wiring-products.eu/

I will second that - I use them all the time although their shrink tube is a bit pricy. Huge range of cable - I use the thinwall type which allows you to go up a size without being any thicker overall.

Here's what a 21/5W red stop/tail and a 21W white single contact from Classic Car LEDs looks like. Cost £16.01 including free delivery and VAT for both.
I particularly like the stop/tail bulb, it looks high quality and its got a full metal shroud so you don't have to worry too much when pushing and turning it to fit in the holder.

They have a large selection of 6V bulbs Neil. Click on the Catalogue tab and select the category you want to look at. Another plus is a very quick dispatch, 2 or 3 days and your bulbs are delivered.
