I wouldn't do that. Solid wire is fine for a building or house that doesn't move. Stranded wire has flexibility which is needed for automotive applications. Your connections may break apart in time. GM doesn't even recommend soldering connections any longer with the exception of OEM terminals when your building a new connector end. The preferred method is using heat sealed wire connectors for wiring repairs.
