I try not to connect two wires, I have a ton of spare wire here in the house so I try to do one piece. And then I get the liquid electrical tape and put heat shrink on the connectors. Lately I have been buying the connectors that already have heat sink. Woodworking sealer is interesting, I have been painting my gauge panels for years with just epoxy, like the same we use on the wood, and that works great too. I think pretty much anything that isn't porous would do the job, Epoxy is just what we have lying around most here.
