I need help. I went to go to install a new duplex receptacle, and then the person complained that they couldn't use the receptacle unless the light was on, so I changed it, and then I realized that the wires in the house weren't tinned copper, but aluminum, so I uninstalled everything and now I don't know how everything goes again.
Don't worry, I drew pictures of the problem, and what I believe to be the correct ish configuration.
Car Electronics/Radio questions

figured this would be the best place to ask.
I received a Uniden Bearcat Scanner and CB Radio this past Christmas and I intend to install them in my 06' Ford Focus ZX3.
I have already determined the best placement for them, installed two antennas, and ran all the wires for the antennas.
My biggest hurdle right now is determining the steps to take to get the devices powered. I have a friend who works for a local FD, has installed multiple radios in his car, and is giving me advice (and hopefully assisting me) installing it.
I know I need either a relay (to automatically power off the radio circuit) or a center-off toggle switch to change between (on when car running > OFF > battery override).
tl;dr, I have plans but am out of practice with my EE skills and need help.
>pic related is interior of car. Cables and ran to near map light (for scanner) and on dash (for CB). more detailed pics incoming.
