    I am replacing the bare wire on the GI on my earthshaker withe the yellow insulated wire used on newer games. Both places I used to buy things lol me that were flooded and are out of business and believe it or not Lows and Home Depot do not carry wire that small. There must be some place on line I can buy it from.

    Im looking for the yellow insulated wire used in later games. I don't want to mess with the bare wire and all the staples.

    OK. I know what you want and I recently bought some 25' rolls in various colors from Home Depot in Wichita but can't find the stuff on HDs website.

    Here is some 16 gauge yellow on Amazon.
