after going through all that work why not finish it off nice? heat shrink isn't that expensive. it stays in place. you only need 5/8-3/4 of an inch to cover the ends. tape/gaudy/unprofessional looking.
Ok , then heat shrink it is ... And I just dont wanna take the connectors off the cables .. So , is the heat shrink gonna be enough extendable so that I need not have to take the black ends off the wires ...
Yeah , I mean that without taking the inline connectors ( or the black plastic covers at the end of the cables ) off , I wanna apply the heat shrink , so how will I do that ???
Also , what is the exact thing that manufacturers use for sleeving their cables .. Because I will be sleeving each connector as a whole , not each wire individually , primarily because I will not be taking off the plastic ends ... These black sleeves are a bit transparent ... So , what are these exactly ???
