forget the butt connectors for now...just cut and re-splice and wrap up with tape so at least it will work THEN go get some connectors and wire and re-do whatever you rigged up

Correction, you dont need it done by tonight. You have tell the fix it ticket says to fix it. If you get pulled over for it you show that Officer your fix it ticket. Doen deal. Gives you more time to fix whatever the hell you did.

dude a cop tried to write me a fix it ticket 3 days after i killed that honda, he was like you need to get that headlight fixed. i said uhh i was in a collision a few days ago . then he says "well im going to have to write you a ticket"
long story short, he wrote me a ticket, and nearly lost his job for being a dumb****
