I tried the exact same thing (same mics and blimp). It worked out fine but be prepared to "lose" your blimp in the process. After all was said and done the setup was married to the blimp. Later when I needed to use it for my 416 I never reasembled the ORTF rig. It was just too much of a pain going back and forth.
Although if you don't need the blimp for anything else, then no worries.
For the connectors, what I did was remove everything from a neutrik connector that wasn't needed. So you're left with the cable soldered to the little plastic piece, which leaves the tiniest of footprint. Then I used heat shrink tubing over the whole thing. This added strength and piece of mind to the assembly.
The above setup worked well. For other setups I might not go with the heat shrink tubing, but since this is in the blimp, and the cables are gripped pretty tightly when you screw on the end caps, I never had problems with them coming detached.
Hope that's of help to you. Good luck with it!
