I gave up soldering when a friend in the industry pointed out to me,
no manufacturer of autos solders connections.
There again they have the big stuff to crimp securely.
I also found getting the wire up to temp to melt the solder made the insulation soft which after cooling was never the same.
Shrink tubing is neat, better than taping, which always peels.
