+1 on MDPC

if you're looking at sleeving them heatshrinkless, there is a thread around here somewhere I have seen it, not sure where it is though tongue.gif

Basically this way of doing it you put shrink on it then keep melting it until it snaps. This means that the braiding beneath it all has melted sufficiently to hold on to the wires without the need for heatshrink. However, my only fear is how strong that will leave them when you move on to doing the next end.

I also would expect that there is multiple ways of doing it as well.

Thanks for all the post guys smile.gif
I'll see if I can find that post that shows the method to do it without heatshrink... if It comes down to it being better overall I will use the heatshrink if needed.
I agree with the MDPC over Paracord from everything I've searched on and will be sticking to it biggrin.gif

Hey bud. There is a method that is shown on youtube by Roberts. But it's done using paracord. However the same (to some extent) can be applied to MDPC. Lutro0 as far as I know seemed happy with it in the thread he posted, so here it is.

Hope this helps.

And don't think you're limited to the colors they offer....you can dye your own custom color to match your rig! Check out this thread for how to.

For some reason I completely missed the responses in here redface.gif
Thank you for all your replies wink.gif

Lovidore thanks you for linking the guide for this I will be using it soon when I finally get round to ordering sleeving (all components are now ordered) and thank you cpachris thanks for the link with the dyes very interesting, fortunately the colours I am after are available for what I need thumb.gif

When sleeving cables why is it people replace the pins with new ones? Is it due to damaging them when removing or for other purposes? I would love to be able to extend my own cables but not feeling to confident in doing so smile.gif

I dont fully endorse his methods as there is a much easier way and stronger method, I plan on doing a video and giving those away once I get moved into my new house. There is alot of details that are left out of his video, but for basic info he did a great job.

Most of the time replacing the pins is due to getting rid of double wires or damaged pins. But otherwise people sometimes make custom wires so that they fit perfectly into their case. If you have not already check the tutorials link in my sig as that should help get you a good amount of info.
