@Tiger.. Actually there is a better splicing method than cut and solder... At work when we build wiring harnesses that require splices, we use a sonic welder to weld the copper strands directly to each other.. (not exactly sure how it works) but it produces a solid splice thats almost impossible to pull apart and has no resistance.. we then use meltable wall heat shrink sleeving to seal the splice. (the shrink tube has hot glue inside of it that melts and seals the exposed copper as it shrinks down..)

I would have loved to splice my wiring this way, but with the wiring still in the car, it isnt possible to splice this way.
