good point, my only concern really is that the connectors look like this: (first image I found on google, but same style..)

So they should be self sealing themselves, but if I ever need to unplug it, I have to carefully cut away the tubing..

I used spiral wrap for the headlights I have now, but that's just three loose wires and some spade connectors.. I'd use spiral wrap again but these connectors are a lot bulkier..

I want something that will make them not as obvious
