For any external wiring connections that might be in the open elements, it's best to use a weatherproof connection that can be disconnected for component removal later. We used Weathertight connector kits from MSD Ignition, along with the company's Pro Crimp II crimping tool (PN 35051, $77.77) and the proper crimping dies (Weathertight, PN 3509; and Deutsch, PN 3510; $34.43 each). For the taillights, we used three-pin connections (PN 8172, $9.79). Four-pin connectors (PN 8171, $10.89) were needed for other areas such as the fuel pump and fuel-level sender, while single-pin and two-pin connectors (PN 8174, $8.03 and PN 8173, $8.36) were used on the engine, cooling fan, and other areas.
