    Coax/Triax is the ONLY think I haven't had any experience with. My WCR course consisted of a 6 hour day tought by someone who didn't know what he was doing. Thankfully that stuff is few and far between. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of Kapton.

    you should have a wcr (wire connector repair manual) that will have the proper procedures for doing it. Then just order a few different spare coax connectors and wire. Just sit in the shop and practice till you have it down.

    220/320 CDI here. Congrats on the qual. Always remember that you don't have to sign off on it unless you feel that it's been done properly, and that if someone (maintenance usually) is giving you shit about something, QA has your back. I've found myself in a few sticky situations and those guys helped out, so don't ever hesitate to do the right thing and call in some help if you need it.

    That's how I do things, if I don't know and I can't find it in the pubs... I ask someone... never assume, and yeah, maintenance can kiss my ass, I'm the one signing it off, not them. I've never done shitty maintenance, and I never will... that's an easy way to a short career.
