Quoted from Frax:

I'm getting a mental picture of a hundred wires and bare joints all pressed up against each other then the game being turned on.

Trim your harness at an angle, so wire #1 is longer than wire forty. Trim the other end so wire forty is longer than wire #1. That way your ends are slightly offset.

Try splicing a 3600 pair telephone cable if you think the Gilligan's Island harness is a pain.

Quoted from Miguel351:

You should just get yourself a heat gun and a ton of solder sleeves.

I wouldn't use solder sleeves because the risk of melting the insulation on adjacent wires is high when trying to do a whole harness.

You need heat shields over everything but the sleeve to use them with minimal risk.

Mark's twist & heat shrink works great. You can use shrink tube with glue if you're worried about corrosion.

Crimp connectors are fine, there is little vibration in this application. Strength isn't needed, just an electrical connection.
