    Just got my factory adaptor and going to mate it to the pigtails from the head. I solder mine, but it's cause I only do a couple radios a year. Is there something better the pros use?

    solder is great, i usually use crimp caps, they're faster.

    Already got the job done with solder. Honda sure don't fuck around with their headunits. Had to remove three panels to get the unit out.

    most installers use crimp caps, since its easier and faster... but soldering is obviously way better :bigthumb:
