Accessory wiring

I'm about to install a number of accessories onto a D90, and want to run multiple wires inside a durable outer sleeve, similar to trailer wiring.

What I'm looking for is options for junctions, ie: if I need to open the harness at some point to connect a light, what could I use instead of heat shrink or electrical tape? I want to make it look nicer than just taped-up. Likely to be 18/3 or 16/4, but also smaller wires for the low draw LED stuff.

Any suggestions?

There are 'T' junctions for the corrugated split wiring loom. You can get them that have a smaller size branch if you're only adding one or two wires somewhere in the run. I'm not clear if that's the sort of thing you're looking for or not.

Techflex split loom is what your looking for.

That's the mobile phone link. Try removing the m in front of eBay.

Here's what I think your requesting. http://m.ebay.com/itm/1-8-SPLIT-BRAI...707?nav=SEARCH

Wire Loom Tees

This is what I had in mind at junctions; haven't yet found the specs for the od on something like 18/3 or 16/4

Found what I was looking for on the Waytek site! I've used them plenty in the past, but hadn't realised their on-line catalog has a lot more coverage than the website. C'est la vie.

I'm a huge fan of braided sleeving. I never knew anyone made a split-loom braided sleeve. Thanks, asetliff. I think braided sleeving provides the best look and best wear protection with the least hassle. It's quick to install. To cut it, don't use scissors. Stretch a length of steel safety wire between two solid, non-flammable objects and heat it with a MAPP torch, then use it to melt the sleeve.
