Dumb question

What size are the wires on the factory radio harness... I want to soldier them and put a heat shrink wrap and i am not sure what the heat wrap sizes are

IIRC, it's metric and I couldn't find shrink tube to fit it. So I just painted it with some Plasti-Dip (the stuff you dip tool handles into) that I got at Loews, just as good.

Radio Shack will have what you need. Comes in multi-size packs. Bought some last week when I ran out of stock in my electrical service van.
