Working on my wing kit now and will be terminating those within the next week or so. I intend to use this:

It's what I used to terminate the MOLEX pins for the trim servo connector too - they were just a lot smaller.

Van’s suggestion for a crimping tool can be found on page 24 of section 5;

Default Excellent crimpers

Hereís the crimpers Iíve used for everything molex, even the straight-from-china Hilitchi molex-copies. Itís a low priced, very accurate tool that ratchets nicely. IWISS makes good stuff.
