Looks much better than those open ended crimp terminals. Just keep and eye on the calbes to make sure they don't start swelling. If they do start swelling you'll know that the corrosion has alredy got a foot hold inside the wires, at that point the only cure will be to cut back to clean solid wire.

Yes, good advice. Thank you. I contemplated cutting my wiring back and redoing these connections, but after soaking in baking soda/water solution and cleaning them up I decided they were looking good enough to continue using. I applied the liquid tape to seal them up.
