Re: Painless harness questions
If I need to butt spice something in the harness, I'll use a bare butt splice terminal. I pack the terminal with dielectric grease, crimp it with a good ratcheting crimper and slip a piece of heat shrink over it when I'm done. For a 14 guage wire or larger you just about can't see the splice except for the heat shrink tubing and a slight bump in the middle. A proper set of ratcheting crimpers is necessary. Don't use those all-in-one crimper / strippers that come with the terminal assortments.
