Re: Wire butt connecters.

If you get electronics type rosin core 60/40 solder, it has the flux built in. Just slide the heat shrink tubing up the wire far enough to be away from heat, twist the wires together, and heat the connection with a soldering iron or mini torch and apply the solder. Then slide the heat shrink tubing onto the connection and shrink it. I recommend practice a couple times soldering some pieces of wire that are not on the truck, and then you'll be ready to go. The self-solder connectors look interesting, but I'm old school I guess.
