Stephen, in wrapping up, looks like you got plenty of opinions below lay and professional (mine included, I try my best to help and give advise thats the safest possible in my professional engineers opinion), FINE GENTS HERE WHO TRY TO HELP, GOTTA LOVE THAT and thats great.
HOWEVER for your safety I strongly advise (IF THERES A CHOICE INVOLVED) you wire it according to what the true EXPERTS, the NEC advises, REGARDLES if any Billy Bobs or Bubbas here who claim they did it their own way and it works so by golly thats how its done lol. And thats true regardless if you even have any local authority or inspections or NEC etc. Im ONLY saying its SAFER if done the NEC way versus Billy Bobs non NEC method (even if Billys still works). Theres the method that WORKS and then theres the method the NEC advises which is no doubt SAFER. TAKE YOUR CHOICES I SURE KNOW MINE
PS the NEC advises certain "minimum" standards. Its is NOT law, some jurisdictiosn have adopted it some not, some older NEC versions, some the latest, I think Chicago has their own. HOWEVER their minumum standards are probably safer then if you choose NOT to adhere to them, even if the less safe method still "works" by golly
You may want to consider, at least think there just may be a possibility the panel of true professional experts who are on the NEC just might maybe perhaps possibly know more then some jack legs or anyone here myself sure included!! Ive attended their seminars taught by some of the finest minds in the electrical business HEY THE NEC PANEL ARENT ANY PUSHOVERS LOL. Think about it then wire it however you please, its your life at risk not ours.
God Bless and keep you and all here safe n sound now. ONLY YOU must decide if you want to follow the NEC method or a still works but less safe method!!!
NOT paid for by the NEC, strictly my own professional engineering OPINION and worth what you paid NOTHING........ABSOLUTELY NOTHING
