Hagerty DIY: Soldering

Soldering – it is one of those skills that seems so easy, but often ends in a clump of spiky metal that has the breaking strain of a warm chocolate bar.

Done well, soldered connections are much stronger and neater than other screw- or clip-terminal connectors, and more able to withstand the rigours of road use.

Let Hagerty protect your collector vehicle from the unexpected.

Fortunately, Matt Lewis from the Hagerty US team is on hand to show you the basics. He describes how to join two wires, both side-by-side and at in a straight line. He explains how to add a wire to an existing circuit without damaging the original, and how to solder good connections on to a switch or terminal.

Oh, and we know Matt’s American pronunciation of the word ‘soldering’ isn’t exactly RP English, but we hope you find the video useful!
