Well, if a high voltage electrician works on your Mustang, your covered!

Lol, me too! If it was in an area where it would be exposed to moisture or was on a moving part like a door or trunk where there was a chance of it coming loose, absolutely go with heat shrink and call it a day, but where it is located its not necessary that's all I've been saying since the beginning.

Thanks. I guess my goal of being consistant is getting noticed.

I'll bow down; it's your Mustang. I'm a perfectionist these days (or try as much as possible to do in my old age). I try to get my young son to pay attention to details and "do it right", only because I'd like to see him also take pride in his work. It's paying off, as he now runs his own automotive repair shop. His painting is amazing. Nice to have this in the family when I need my custom parts done.

I digress. I will fight no more forever (on this thread topic).

+1 on shrink wrap. My dad is an electrical engineer and has his own business as an electrician professionally. We put in a audio system in my last car and we used heat wrap to kept it all good and then we taped over it just for more measures. He's an over achiever. Never had a problem out of it.

My wife thinks I'm crazy because of my OCD that she claims I have about my car. Bit anywsys If you read the first post by the op he was simply asking for a little guidance on which wires to tap onto for his projection lights, and seeing how I just did mine I went into my OCD garage to take a picture for him instead of saying cut this wire that wire etc! I never thought that helping someone out on this forum would turn into calling my wiring a "mess" or "we should take pride in our work" thingy! Maybe you should get some more zzzs in the morning before jumping on, I was just trying to help someone out!!!!
Lol weld the tips on. No more problems. I always had to adjust mine. Not now :p

Considering I'm a welder its not a bad idea to take them to my shop and weld it, or at least just tack it, but it makes it so much easier to polish by removing the tips.

I just use some engine degreaser on the old microfiber I use for the tires and fender walls and spray some on, and wipe clean. That or some goo gone to get that pesky carbon spots off.

I used some chrome cleaner and they came out nice except for a few dots. I never thought to use goo gone. I'll have to give it a try this weekend. Thx bro!
