Default Any electrician's offering a wire shortening service?

Like most of us I tend to be a neat freak with my cars and no matter how hard I try I can't get the jumble of extra wiring from my ESC & Servo under control. I have seen some great services offered on these forums lately such as Aluminum Anodizing and Chassis protection, was wondering if anyone is offering a service to shorten the wires of these devices so they fit a little cleaner into the small space found on today's touring cars? Obviously the person would have to have good feedback to be trusted with the hundreds of dollars in gear and a good electronics background before I just ship them my stuff

its fairly easy to do..just get a micro crimper (no more than 10 here) and buy a set of reciever plugs and cut the wire to length..strip part of it back, put the little crimps on and slide the connecter on.

or a cheaper method, if your good with the iron is to solder the wire internally after shortening it.

I've done the solder internally thing to shorten them. I found it easier to shorten the plug side as you don't have to worry about messing up as bad. That said, I don't bother to shorten anymore as a couple zip ties tidy things up nicely and I can swap servos/esc's to different cars with no problems.
