    I got some of the weatherpack style connectors for my dash at the local hot rod shop. They were 4 pin each but the guy said they have them in many different pin configurations. I have also used "dead" wiring harnesses out of engine compartments of various cars/trucks for diffrent things, just clip enough wire behind each side to splice into and your set. Got mine from diffrent projects but you could probibly find some at the local wrecking yards, I'm sure once they're crimped or otherwise damaged they're useless to the yard.

    i'm using a used marine unit we had at work for my dash disconnect setup, believe its 16 pin weatherproof.. they are used to attach engine harness's to the boat harness, for quick engine removal... the one i'm using is off a Crusader, about 3" long x 1" wide.. Mercruiser uses a similar one, but round...

    don't see it listed in my catalog here at home... i'll hunt around the web a little and see what i can dig up for ya... you could probably use a Dinn connector also...

    Here are few sources I find useful...

    www.waytekwire.com/ (this is a great source for Weather-Pak and other popular OEM connectors)

    www.newark.com (a good electronic/electrical industrial supplier)

    MSD has an 8-pin connector PN# 8185 and 12-pin PN# 8186

    I've attached a pic of what they look like.
