Awesome, thanks for the help guys very thorough.
I would definitely be after this teflon coated or silicone wire. Basically the stock mechbox wire. I will have to check out Home Hardware (since I need to pick SuperLube) and see what they have. I should try Radioshack as well.
Pawscal where did you find that "18g Teflon coated wire" you speak of? That stuff sounds pretty good.
