Wiring

Can anyone recommend a source of tinned multi-strand wire - that doesn't involve the purchase of 25 ft rolls.

I need to bite the bullet [connector] and re-wire things. I don't need specific colours especially, but a variety of colours would make thinks a lot easier (now and during future fault-finding).

The fall-back position is to purchase some trailer wiring and strip off the outer sheath. This would give me 7 colours.

Thanks
Hugh
