That's good news, thanks! Would it be possible to include a picture? I'm curious what connectors they supplied (it's fine wire!).

It's just a small black box box with a 6 gang connector inside. You can make one yourself. Nothing special about it.

As I indicated, my question was about the connectors. The smallest stuff I find is for 18 gauge (which arguably, shouldn't even be on a boat for 12V use). Heat Shrink Terminals Adhesive Lined Wire Connectors Genuinedealz.com
As I recall, the instrument wires are much smaller than that. I wouldn't want to simply wrap the bare wire around a screw on a terminal block.
I guess I could fill in the 18 gauge connector with another piece of wire, but I hope that's not the most elegant solution!

Wire size more like a 22. Not your standard terminal block either. This one has the screws inside the tube with the wire inserted at the base of the tube then the screws are tightend down on the wire. Maybe have to look at an electronics shop parts section for these.
