Nice job. Don't forget to strap that ugly flex.

Oh yeah, protect the one that's 4 inches from the wall.

Edit:

Actually you should trash the flex and conduit in. Cut out the floor of the second cab. and figure something out.

Problem with working 2 AM. Ya just want to get her done.

Looks good doc. Explains why we haven't seen much of you lately.

I know when your working like that, is when your Really making money. But that early morning to late LATE night stuff burns me out quick, and I start dragging and making lots of mistakes.

looks good to me

only thing I would have done differently is strap the flex and use an escustcheon
We had a plumber on a job that I did years ago that would walk around throwing those things at us electricians....."Your holes look like crap, put one of these things on you idiot."

One of the guys did, thought it would look good. The inspector wanted it grounded.:laughing::laughing:

Never would have thought of using them before. Really not a bad idea, I like it, and i may do that next time I have a kitchen island. :thumbsup:

Didn't know that. I have to agree...they would make things look better. Have a link for what you use, or are you going to make me Google it?

naw, no links, the last time I used an escutcheon was for a vacuum system and I picked it up at Home Repot.

it was hinged and metal

The holes were off just in case measurements I wrote down, the display installer sucked, he cut my stubs down, layed the displys over them , mounted them and didn't even mark them. I was off on one of them by an 1"

That's where a gold/diamond ring falls down and some lucky slob finds it 50 years from now.
