What like are the crimps you are after?
Ones that go in the bulkhead connector found on a 1997 peugeot expert. Some pics here: http://wookware.org/pics/cinch/

It has lots of spare ways but crimps are unobtainium. They were originally made by Cinch in the US, but they were later sold to Molex in France. I did get a phone number of someone at Molex who said he might be able to help but I never got any joy.

I'm the sort of perfectionist that thinks it would be much better to use spare ways in the nice, expensive, waterproof bulkhead connector than to just drill a hole through the tin, even though this requires months of tracking down crimps and hours of picking PU out of the spare channels, whereas the quick and dirty solution would have been done some years ago...

We are now hopelessly off-topic but if anyone does know where to get such things it would be handy. I've concluded the only thing to do is go to the scrappy and just get another to raid.

In afeeble attempt to get back on topic here is a (confusing) pic of my batts mounted in the van: http://wookware.org/pics/van/img054.jpeg.html
