Bathroom Lighting


Is there a ground wire with the supple wires on the left? There doesn't appear to one in the picture.

There is another bare copper wire in the middle of the white/black wires. It is cut short to the end and only the very tip is exposed.

Can you pull some more of that cable out of the wall, so that you can expose more of the bare ground wire?

From everything you have said so far, it seems to me that it will work exactly as nate described.

Also, on a really side note, if that medicine cabinet is what you are putting in, be advised, they no longer come w/ bevelled sides. The new boxes show the bevelled edges in the pictures, but the mirror itself is flat inside. I have one and was a bit surprised when I opened it and found that out, I contacted the company and learned what I just explained. I still like it a lot, it didn't make much difference to me.
