Re: Wire butt connecters.

All the factory connectors are crimped on new vehicles and our 50 year old vehicles. Soldering has a potential for the conductor to break right where the solder ends if there is any vibration. Properly crimped connections will last a very long time. Adding the heat shrink adds a bit of strain relief.
