What Sort of Connector?

Exactly what sort of connection/connector is used in places like this where a couple, or a whole bunch of wires meet?


Are the wires simply soldered together and wrapped in electrical tape, or is a crimp-type connector used?
What did the factory do here?

Yes, get ready for a bunch of Qs..
I have just begun wiring my car.

Re: What Sort of Connector?

Each connection has a unique connector that just presses together. I found that if you pay attention it is hard to wire it incorrectly because each wire end will only connect to one location. Instead of trying to make your own wiring why don't you buy an original design reproduction wiring harness?

Re: What Sort of Connector?

The areas that you zoomed on are actually connections premade within the harness.

I don't recognize the 2 in the left picture, but the one in the right is the "Main Splice"
It is physically located in the light harness, near the regulator and horn relay. There are pics of it in an original harness, including one with the tape off, here: https://www.camaros.net/techref/elect...ain_splice.htm There is no connector, it is just soldered, then it was wrapped with sticky black plastic tape, prior to the whole harness getting it's wrap in no stick tape. Some of the other in-harness connectors may be crimped in a sleeve then soldered.

Re: What Sort of Connector?

Thanks Jim, that pretty much answers my question.
The other pic that you may not have recognized is on the dash harness. 10 wires meeting together for the ground connection, 4 wires for the cig-lighter/compartment lamp/etc and 6 wires for the warning lights/gauges.
I'll assume these are soldered too.
