Did you buy or make a sleeving kit?

You're basically adding additional connectors to your existing PSU. This requires some pretty detailed work. It doesn't look difficult, but you need a kit too!

I bought it.

No i am not adding additional connectors. I am simply adding a sleeve to the existing wires for a finished look. How do i take the end piece(connector) off the wire to make the sleeve fit over?

Ahhh, excellent. Too much coffee once again! Well, if you have already purchased a kit then thats what I was worried about. I thought that this was for also adding connector. Perhaps I have it confused with something else. Hopefully, someone with experience can reply. I haven't seen this question here before I don't think.
Have you done any additional searches? Sounds like you may need a few visual tools as well. How about this:

There are quite a few more on the net if you don't like that type of tool. Just do a search for "Molex Pin Remover" and you'll get some hits on other sites.
Is it possible to remove the female Connectors?
