you obviously know not to do any dumb stuff, but dont listen to the people that are so concerned about your safety that they tell you call a pro. I had the same prob and everyone I called was like " if you dont have any experience..." I hung up and hard-wired my crap in. all im saying is - its just another trade. be cautious, do some homework, drive on.
Maybe not all is on your mentallity level. Some people can't feel electricity, others it will knock clear across the room. I have seen some real cobbled up stuff in my life that was only moments from causing a fire. I do all of my work and have it inspected. If a person is not comfortable then they should call a "Pro". By that I mean someone that knows what they are doing. There are many electricians out there that will take a job on the side for a few bucks after hours.
