Hard splices in a bad place

I'm familiar with this issue--it gets even more expensive when an airplane is envolved.  I'm an officer in a Chicago-area flying club--we do our own oil changes and other maintenace that pilots are allowed to do, as opposed to FAA-certified mechanics/technicians.

The problen is that the white tail position light (running light) is mounted on the rudder--the moving part not the stational tail fin.  With age and lots of flexing (it is a major control surface!) the wire breaks.  Pilots are allow to change the light bulb but not trouble shoot and repair the wiring.  We trouble shoot, but a certified technician is required to solder the wire, and now you have a hard splice, just like the car stereo.   It's about a half-hour job, and we have one or two Airframe & Powerplant licensed mechanics in the club so it was easy to make the airplane legal at night.
