    I an finishing wiring my Boss V but the headlight adaptor kit is for the wrong year. would it be that big of a deal to splice the adaptors to the main wiring harness (main harness would be spliced). The headlight adaptors are good on the light side but not on the main harness side. reason being is the dealership that I was at yesterday is almost an hour away! I would do it right with heat shrink and solder. Let me know, thanks guys!

    Doing it the right way, as you describe, should work fine. I'm big on the solder and heat shrink routine myself and have gone to adhesive lined shrink for any locations that are subject to water and slush. The unlined stuff works fine inside the cab.

    heat shrink and solder will be fine, I found that dielectric grease on the exposed solder THEN heat shink is even better, make sure you leave at least 3/4 to 1 inch of heat shrink each side of te splice for good protection.
