I don't trust crimp connectors, I have seen too many to fail, and cause problems that are hard to find later on down the road, especially when using heat shrink over the top of them.
Slim that's a great point, I wouldn't want to try and find a broken connector in all that.

This is the awesome thing about forums or forumz. You have so many different people and all the different ways of doing things. There are so many great ideas on here and some great people giving the ideas out.

a lot of old military trucks just used crimped eyelets, and man tracing down miles and miles of white wires with tiny black numbers really sucked

As some of you guys know, I am in the beginning stages of a major wiring project. I have been sourcing parts for a couple of months now. I have been searching for two things, A power distrobution box (or a fuse box, relay block, and buss bars). Today I think I finally found my solution.

Last thing on my list to check off is the wiring... grr taxes need to get here so I can afford wire... you would think copper was gold at the prices I am getting quoted.
