    So I am attempting to tap into my turn signal wires and am using some taps that seem to be waterproof. However, after hooking it up wrong in the first place, I have to re-connect on the correct wires and cannot re-use these taps (I kind of wrecked them when I took them apart). Of course, I went to several auto parts stores and cannot locate similar waterproof taps. Any ideas where to get them?

    Blue, full of di-electric grease? try Napa.

    I prefer to solder connections that way they dont corrode as much. If I need to I use scotch locks and fill them up with silicone before I put the wire in.

    Ive always liked the crimp and shrink butt connectors from Napa. There must be a thousand in and around my truck and I dont have any corrosion/electrical issues.
