What wiring connectors do you use?
 
Should start wiring my car next week & I can't seem to find the connectors I normally use. Which connectors do you prefer?

I use crimp-on but, if it doesn't heat shrink after that I shy away from them (inside or outside use)

Lately I've used the Solder seal..
 
Solder joint and shrink wrap all in one connector... a bit pricey but have worked out very well for me... (on the little bit things I've actually worked on..lol)

I use nothing but seamless bare crimps and double wall heat shrink.

FWIW, there is a good thread on crimping and soldering over on the HAMB

FWIW?? Cheap-Fast-Well Done - Priceless! That's about as easy as it gets as long as you remember the shrink.

I've been known to soldier an iffy mash connector (or bare wires) with a little flux and a Bic lighter. One of those roadside fixes. Just gotta be careful not to melt the wire insulation.

FWIW! [ddd Just don't want to get caught up in the endless debate about soldering versus crimping. Never had a solder joint break. But a few projects back, I switched to crimping and shrink wrap. I even found one of the preferred crimping pliers in my tool box, placed there maybe 60 years ago and totally forgotten about!
