Heads up on a great product I used!

No this is not spam. But it is electrical related. I just finished putting an Ezwiring harness in my 66 mustang and used some shrink tubing from harbor freight that was great! It comes in a roll and you can get different sizes. I mostly used the 1/4" size. I liked it mostly because I could just cut off what portion I needed as I went along. I have previously only seen shrink wrap in little packages with already cut pieces and didn't like using those at all. The rolls were only about $4. worth a try if you have to do any elect. work and want to seal it up. I used a heat gun to shrink it. Good luck...gary.

The normal type heat shrink doesn't seal, it just makes the termination look pretty.

If you want the termination to be sealed, you need to crimp a non insulated lug on then solder it. This seals the end of the wires so the wire won't corrode from the inside out due to capillary action. Finish the job by using a marine type heat shrink with adhesive in it. This seals the lug to the insulation.
