my only suggestion is to solder the connections instead of using the pos 3m connectors or wirenuts..

In the pictures you posted, there is still bare wire hanging out the end of the wiretaps... besides the fact they are prone to fail.

+1 on the soldering but those are self-piercing scotchlocks, actually pretty good connection for a non-signal/ECM type tap.

i cut the bare wire flush with the quick connects.
i plan on soldering and heat shrink covers when i'm not so lazy.
