I saw that ...pretty cool I wonder what the shelf life is on the stuff once opened?

Gee Scotty I thought you were being sarcastic when you said you hadn't heard of liquid electrical tape. Its been around a long time. I use it on my offshore boat alot for crimp connections down in the bilge and then heatshrink over it (becareful as it is flamable). I have had pretty decent luck with shelf life after its opened, its not as fluid but still usable.

Heat shrink over liquid tape? Isn't that like wearing 2 condoms
I spent the last 30 yrs inland in SoCal. Not much rust and corrosion going on here as other places Glad to hear it has some shelf life. ..

I do this on the offshore boat in wet prone areas, salt water is hell on connections. I havn't fooled with it on the cart, but it would make for a cleaner look on the bat. cables. I always put the heat shrink on while the liquid tape is still wet that way it also bonds to the heat shrink. Probably just a little better than two condoms.

First you shouldn't really solder the terminals on the cable. If you use the proper terminals and the correct compression tool, the connection resistance will be lower than a compressed and soldered connection, and applying that kind of heat will weaken the connection.

If you insist on soldering the terminals onto the cable the proper procedure is first to use a cable with tinned conductors like DLO type, compress the connector onto the cable, then use a rosin core, 2% silver solder. There is no reason to use flux as it is made in the solder itself.
