Treat yourself to some leaded solder and it'll be fine. I thought I'd lost the knack of soldering for years but it turns out I'm still quite good at it so long as I use the leaded stuff.

Agreed...

Crimps on the very thin wiring typically associated with air-bags and pre-tensioners can be very unreliable and difficult to make absolutely successfully. Much better soldered...

Looks like a good option.
