Re-Wiring the Big Beam

Crimp, solderless connectors have a well deserved bad reputation. Whenever I lift a hood and see a yellow crimp on a piece of 18 gauge stranded, I think, better get home before dark!

I am an advocate of solderless connectors BUT you have have a set of Vacos. Smashing the plastic is not enough, you need to leave a deep dimple.
