I always hated wiring D connectors. Though I greatly enjoyed the solder cup terminals and the lovely joints they would make, the pin numbers were nearly impossible to read and on the front, where they were mirrored and confusing.Male and female 'D' type connectors, mounted on a chassis, look the same from the wiring side but the pin numbers go opposite ways. It is easy to get the wires backwards.
I was going to mention that I switched to those. For cables, i used the shells that have an 8-pin modular connector where the cable gland would otherwise be.I have the crimp tool and insertion pins, a little cleaner and quicker than solder.
Also no need to populate what is not used.
