Default Classic Beetle wing top indicator wiring.

Recently bought these wing top indicator bases 68-79.



I'm currently installing a completely new loom and the section for linking the indicators has two wires, whereas the indicator bases only have one connection, so unsure how these would be wired up.
can anyone advise please?

connect the live wire to spade terminal and earth wire to holder body using a ring terminal or similar

Originally they earthed to the steel wings through the mounting bolt/nut, with a washer that cut through the paint.

That makes sense.
All my wings are fibreglass Day Mouldings now, so suppose I'll have to improvise some how.
