Wire Splice

This may be a bit off topic, but here goes. I have a 2001 Chevy Blazer LS. A few months after I bought I installed a headlight/tailight flasher and a Whelen Dash King Blue light. These are because I'm in the FD. The Dash King came with a cigar plug, but in the interest of hiding wires, I had it hard wired into a switch on the dash with an inline fuse, and tucked the wire into the edge of the headliner. It gives a nice clean look, no exposed wires etc. The Dash King is mounted to the glass underneath the mirror using glue. In the recent heat, the glue has melted and the light fell, as a result I've bought a new blue light which mounts by clipping around the rear view mirror. I was wondering if it is possible to just cut the cord from the existing light and then just splice the cord from the new light into it. Is it safe to do, can it be done? What kind of connector would I need? I want to do this because to run the new cord would mean taking off trim and part of the dash. Since I got through the first install without breaking any of the clips, I don't want to push my luck. Thanks for any help.

What you want to do is completely possible and as for connectors to do it with any Radio Shack in your area should have connectors in stock you can use.
