Default aftermath of the wiring install (not for the faint of heart)

this is what happens when you try to strip 4 gauge wire with a pocket knife at 2am working under moonlight

the picture doesnt really do it justice, its about an 1/8 inch deep, and bled like a ****

If y'all wanna show off personal injury pics, just wait til I get home.

Here'* a hint, tho...



That finger cut looks painful, BTW...

I dunno, dude. My injury (never scanned the pic) was in the leg. Yours is in the index finger. Guess which one gets bumped/inthe way/reopened more often??

HINT: It ain't the leg....

I hate cutting my fingers.....

Thats what the black tape is for, bandaging yourself. Any electrician knows this, we use connectors for the wires....tape for the fingers :P


Looks bad though, keep it covered and put a bit of salf on it. The cowboys use to make a 'Poltise' for the injuries like gun shots and saddle soars but I dont know what was in it?
