Correct on the Scotchloc connectors, although don't get hung up on names. They are really Insulation Deplacement Connectors (IDC). Excellent source for them is Mouser Electronics on the web. Just be careful and get the proper size for the wire sizes you are using. I use the brown ones for 12ga bus connecting to 18ga feeders.

Unless you need a 100 just go to the auto parts store. FRED
