If you choose to do it this way, I would use solder on the connections before shrink tube.

Where you have to run the 2 wires piggyback from slip ring harness to shifter harness obviously you have to strip a section of insulation off straight run and twist in the piggyback wires - here I would have also used solder on the joints before shrink tubing.

Yes absolutely!! Listen to this advice folks! This was my first wiring attempt ever. I youtubed how to join wires and the first video I saw showed the fan method.

I think I will redo everything just to be safe

I didn't realize male female pins could be purchased regularly haha...that's how new I am.

Use this DIY for an idea of how it should look in the end -- I'll update the OP when I get a some more time.
