I definitely give you an "A" for craftsmanship.

A picture is worth a thousand words... Here is the connector pin. 2 wires, one pin. Spaced correctly to allow the normal look of two wires coming out of the connector. Hope that makes since.


I love it bud! Out of the box thinking at its very best!

Nice pin mod smile.gif

And do you guys have any tricks for training the wires of a custom harness before sleeping them? I usually just mount them in place and force then to take the shape, but I was wondering if there is a better way as I will be doing 3 custom harnesses in the near future redface.gif

i have looked at these, but if im just being honest i hate the look of them redface.gif... I was wondering if there was possibly a specially sleeved wire that you guys use that will hold a form better then typical 18 or 20 gauge wire, but isnt as fragile as a single strand wire... i was also wondering if there was some form of technique for making wires hold a certain shape... i currently just hold them in one place until they stay, but it takes far too long... i was wondering about ever so slightly heating up the casing on the wire so that when it fully re solidifies, it will hold the turn because it will be harder from the denationalization of the plastic sleeve smile.gif

You could try solid core wire, I thought of trying it but didn't know how the pins would crimp to solid core... If you try it, let us know how it works. tongue.gif

As for the typical stranded 18AWG, there is no voodoo magic, you just have to train it. The tighter the plastic sleeve the better it seems to train. You don't have that option with paracord.

the crimp holds just fine to solid core wire smile.gif... i have used it in the past, but it holds the bends the same as stranded and its a bit more fragile... and i sleeve with parachord exclusively (atleast in builds for me) simply because i like the look a lot more tongue.gif... i guess ill try a few different things and post what i find... im not expecting anything to work, but its worth a shot tongue.gif
