Of all the skills required when building a classic truck, wiring has always been one of my stronger points. That said, my results are normally problem free, but in all truthfulness not always 100 percent successful. A couple of the most common gremlins which effect rewire jobs are improper or insufficient grounding-the other is corrosion. Between the two, grounding problems are normally immediately felt-while corroded connections usually sneak up on you over time. It's the lag time between the initial rewire and the corrosion-caused failure that makes tracking the trouble such a headache. Mainly because corrosion-caused malfunctions are often intermittent rather than constant, and require a full and detailed inspection of every aspect of the system-an aggravating and time-consuming chore to say the least.

Recently I discovered the perfect solution to these eventual corrosion problems (which in my experience anyway, have occurred most often in open-ended butt connectors), and since I've utilized this easy solution I've yet to experience any malfunctions, nor do I expect to in the future. The product I'm speaking of is called SpliSeal-and it's a quick and easy product/technique that ensures professional-looking sound connections that eliminate the possibility of contamination and the eventual failure of those aforementioned butt connections. SpliSeal does this by entirely encapsulating butt connections in a professional OEM-looking cocoon of high-tech polymer sealant that's impervious to moisture and corrosion-and it does so almost as easily and quickly as the process of installing a butt connector itself.

Take a look at the following images taken on my initial use of SpliSeal and see just how simple a process it is and how you cannot only ensure trouble-free wiring connections but achieve a much more professional look to your next wiring job as well.
