+1.  Posi-locks are indeed awesome.  Eastern Beaver widely uses these in their kits.  No more soldering, electric tape, or poorly-crimped connectors.

Speaking of which, for the situations where you _have_ to use crimp-on connectors, get one of those professional-grade, ratchet-style crimpers with the replaceable dies.  I got one of these last year (about $35, I think), and I wish I'd got one a lot sooner.  These make crimp-on connectors actually useful, especially when used along with some quality heat shrink tubing.

I highly recommend Eastern Beaver's kits.  These look expensive, but it's actually a bargain for the quality and time you'd save sourcing all the parts yourself:
