Thanks.

Looks like you'll be needing a lineman's splice[1] for the two wires, then
once soldered, just slide the shrink tube over the joint.


1. heat-shrink tube on white or black wire, far enough away it won't
start to shrink.
2. splice the wires
3. solder
4. center heat-shrink over splice

Thanks.  

Lineman splice looks pretty neat.

Does it work with stranded wire as well?

It does

in cases where the the wire isulation is too thin to hide the bulge
caused by the splice I just overlap the wires and bind them together
with a fine wire before soldering.

In the photo I see the green heatsink on the black wire it should
probably be pushed further away from the join before soldering,
but as the black wire is fatter than the white (clear?) wire the
heatshrink will probably still be usable if it does start to shrink.

I have found that on occasion, tinning the wires helps considerably, as
the tinned ends act as solid-core wire while wrapping them around each
other.
