Default Empennage wiring: C409P

Does anyone know if the C409P connector (for the elevator trim) came on the wires? In the plans (10-25-old plans) it says to install C409P into the bulkhead, but not anything about assembly. It was long enough ago, that I don't know if I did this or if Van's did it. Either way I found both white wires pulled out today and I was able to easily pull out all the wires from their molex connectors.

I am pretty sure that the builder installed the micro molex connectors and inserted them into the plug. As I recall, that was my first experience with the dreadful micro-molex!

I'm replacing all the micro-molex connectors with either d-subs, d-sub pins that are shink-wrapped, or Deutsch DTM connectors.
