Good to know about extending circuits in situations like this.

OK,,, back with another question on this.
Since I have to run a new cable anyway , it's 8/3 w/ground.

- is it OK to leave the old wire in the walls/ceiling or do I have to figure out a way to get it the heck out of there?

- any restrictions on running this as follows:

-out the top of the panel in the same slot as the old wire,
-up the inside of the garage wall (ie between the sheetrock and ourside sheathing
-Through the hole in the top plate of wall and then across the garage ceiling(ie in the garage attic
-then, down the inside of the garage wall(the side that is the house side), so it would be between the sheetrock on the garage wall and the sheetrock on the inside wall,
**for this part, I can't get it down through the top plate of the wall, so I'd have tobring it in through a hole in the top of the sheetrock, which would be just about
where the ceiling and wall meet (i'm sure this is probably a no-no ? )
- through the bottom sill plate and into the basement.
-Then across (through(the floor joists and then up through the wall where the new wall ovens will be
