The grey wire from the MSC is for the headlight bulb kit.

The orginal tubes is next to impossible to find and I think that sort of tubes was only used on the 959/Celica chassis.

The "Straight Run Rider" and "Starting Rider" have one full face helmet/head each, the "Racing Rider" has two different varieties of full face. I have one spare one, but again it's a full face helmet
I know the "Street Rider" and whatever they call the one that comes with the Virago kit both have bertie bombshells, but that would be an expensive way to do it, and neither are looking down at the map.

Later cars have smooth resistors without those ribs, I guess they are the same dimensions.
I'll have a look in my parts bin and in my vehicles to see if I can measure both types.
