Started wiring 1951 chevy car, need help

Ok I have the new EZ wiring harness ran to the back for tail lights etc. I put in some two wire bulb sockets that ground on tail light assembly. The tail light assemblies holes are to big and it looks like I will need to use the old ones? The olds are spring loaded when pushing the bulb in them? Can I find these new at the local auto parts store? I wish I could explain it better to everyone. The harness is pretty cool and I am taking my time making sure everything is triple checked and wires are covered with a loom etc. Hopefull when I am done this will give me convidence to go onto bigger and better things. Any help on the 1951 stock tailght buckets would be helpful. Maybe they make after market ones that you can buy from a chevy parts place.
Thanks in advance

Doc here,

Here is what I would do if I was you....

Take the original Tail lamp Assembly's with you to the Auto-parts store...match up the Compression rings, type of bulb to be used ... AND Highly Suggest you get the type with a separate ground wire added..
