When you get ready to cut each wire to it's finial length, I have found it a very good idea to, cut it about 1 inch longer than I actually need, hold/slip the crimp terminal on, position it to where it's gonna stay forever and then make the finial "to-length" cut, remembering to allow for the stripping of the wire.

It's not a good idea to allow for a lot of extra wire "in case I need it later for repairs". What you'll end up with is a mess of wires bunched up and look like *****. Tie it in tight as you go and you'll be happier with the end look
