"Now, I'll explain how to solder EL Cable. To start you'll need to strip the Transparent Plastic Layers off of the EL Cable carefully. Be careful, becasue you can cut through those two tiny wires. They are not fun. Next you should see two tiny wires wrapping around the phosphour, try to bend these outward in the same direction. If one is cut, don't worry. You only need one of these tiny wires. Then you can strip the phosphour off of the middle wire with your fingernail. If you don't have fingernails you can use the edge of a knife/razor blade. Just be careful. I like to leave a little bit of phosphour so the two wires dont touch and short it out. Now solder a piece of wire (preferrably not your inverter wire, so you can make it longer) to the large middle wire, and solder another piece of wire to your small wire/wires. Now remember if using heatshrink to put it on the wire before soldering. And if not using heatshrink, be sure to use something. I used masking tape on mine :-) I couldn't find my electrical tape and just spotted the masking tape. I taped twice. Once around the middle wire and again around it all. This should do just fine."
