Now that I can solder the right way I started putting Patches' slip ring together. I matched up the color codes on the wires so positive and negative are at opposite ends of the ring.
I stripped the wires, put them in a twisted loop and applied flux.
I then crimped on the connectors and then let the flux suck the solder into the joints.
Don't mind the mess LOL.
Here is one side done....
Now the other.
It connects to itself just fine, now I have to make the corresponding connectors for in the body and in the dome. Once that is done I will protect the wire ends by coating them in liquid rubber like the kind you use to make tool handle grips.
