Cable rating - domestic

If I were doing it, 4mm. You know your own usage patterns, but if I had that size of workshop I might even consider 6mm. May be considered over-engineering, but you could install it and forget it.

why hide the reg number and chassis number on the 'list of details' then add a photo of both :shock:
