Even if the difference isn't that drastic, I can't believe the "wiring" will be that drastic either.
Thanks again to everyone that contributed to the lesson.

Doc here,

KEWL! It's not THAT hard to wire either..

I always approach my descriptives from the point of view that the reader has never SEEN a wire before, that way the most basic information is put out..and the person doesn't get insulted..

However, If you have had any wire experience at all, It'll be a piece of Cake!

Thanks for the reply Back!
