When you guys are splicing 2 to 1 what do you use to heat shrink around those wires?

And how do you guys hook up to back of switches? Just a butt connector with the flat end to slide on?

Butt connectors are fine as long as you don't crimp on the seam. Once you do that, you ruined the connector.

It's sometimes hard to solder behind the dash...

cordless soldering pen works great for this...Easier to get behind the dash than the pliers you need to install the t tap.

Don't like them, the positwist i can use if a few wires but none of the other, cost to much and after time , the connection fails, this is the case when use with the wrong gauge wire,
Butt connectors are cheaper and takes less time , I also agree with everybody here, solder and heat shrink
