With steel prices going through the roof, Bozo Electric is saving where they can (no offense meant Bozo).

Bozo would've at least used a 2G plastic nail-on box! [Linked Image] This almost looks like someone trying to make a spider web!

Bad Plumbing doesn't work!

Bad Electrical works until it catches fire!

Maybe the leaks from the bad plumbing will eventually extinguish the fire caused by the bad wiring.... [Linked Image]

Seriously though, this is probably a universal problem. Change those wirenuts for strip connector blocks and pretend those white wires are red and this could just as easily be in a British attic.

Hi Paul,

I've seen some of the wire terminal you're talking about, one of the Irish guy's had some in his bags left over. I thought they were quite cool. I'd like to see someting like them used here. But are you saying, they are not required to be in a box over there? Tell me that's not so... Anyway, if you could, post some pic's of their proper use, I'd like to see them.
