Thoughts on Solderless Terminals
Solderless terminals and connectors generally work well for most automotive electrical repairs. However, they look awful. Learning to solder properly only takes a little practice, but the results look much better and will last indefinitely especially if finished with a section of “heat shrink tubing” which is available in colors to match most wires. If you must use solderless terminals and connectors, use those intended for marine use. They form an airtight and watertight seal by heating the ends after making your splice.

and place where cars were worshipped, and none more so than the
“American Muscle Car,” although this was a phrase that wasn't coined
until decades later.By the age of twelve he was repairing just about
anything with an engine.
