I also hate these damn connectors, I had to go through 4 of them to fit a single load resistor
I see on another site you put up some photos of load resistors at the front. Could you give some advice on getting more room to do it? I kinda bodged it due to the time it was taking, the lack of room to work and broken strip connectors.
I need to re-visit it soon and solder the wires and mount the resistors properly, but is it easy to just pop out the headlights to give beer access to the wires?

For those not familiar with them, they use a little brass spike to make a small puncture in the insulation of the wire that is not obvious if you remove the connector later. The connector can be re-used as often as required. They come in a selection of sizes to cater for a range of wire gauges.
They're not common in the UK and buying them from the US isn't cheap. I get mine from a UK seller, https://posi-connect.com - another vendor (though with fewer size choices) is http://kojaycat.co.uk/Connectors-Posi-Tap. They appear now and then on eBay as well.
Info on Posi-Taps and other locking solutions the company makes:
