Wiring Nexus network

I'm rewiring my Nexus Network instruments, and can't find a place to buy the 26 gauge bullet terminals. Nexus appears to call them "wire protectors." Trying to wire the instruments, transducers, and server together without the terminals/protectors is a mess.

Anyone know Where I can get some, or another way to make the tiny wires manageable?

Check out Allied Electronics also. They are called ferrules.

djodenda- I am happy with them, there was one multi-display inside on the boat when we bought it and I added a digital wind and a multi in the cockpit. I was pleasantly surprised to hear that they built the new instruments to be compatible with the old system (2001) I have. They work well and they have good phone support. I shopped around on the internet and found that the prices vary quite a bit so do enough research to make sure you're getting the best price.
