How to solder

I posted this in the electrical section but thought maybe it could help out here as well, for those doing some engine wiring.

Connection options, splicing wires and how to do it right, and WRONG!

excellent write up.

I normally use the "butt soldering" method, I find its the cleanest way and make everything look the nicest.

nice DIY. you didn't mention tap cons..... those BS pinch over the conductor connectors alot of shops use. I wish every customer who goes into a shop could see this first and understand it takes a bit longer for every connection properly.

I should clarify that this is not my write up, I found it online and wanted to share. I tried both methods today and it worked well, but sometimes it's awkward to get into places.
