I thought I had a worm can.

But when it comes to wiring, I'd always rather start from scratch than try to make something out of something else.

I'm thinking you'll need to be fitted for a hat in a few weeks!

Our B52's used all white wires but they had numbers printed on them so you could tell what was on them and where they went.
