    to crimp or not to crimp

    lol, that seems a bit extreme... the fact that you say things to yourself dont bother me, the fact that you answer yourself is another story all together! ive had several sports cars since the 90's always driving like a teen in a sports car with extensive stereo systems using these very type...
