Mine came with the abs 1050w, probably just a standard when you get up to 1000w.

Where are you finding a 12 gauge power cable? or are you just running your own wires and braiding/shrinking?

Edit: awesome idea i think would be to single sleeve and then braid the wire.

LOL you read my mind. I was thinking of running a transparent tube around the braid to protect it and make it look more complicated too ;P

When, you braid them remember the lengths will get different so you will have to hold off on cutting the end untill you know where you are going to stop.

Gave this one a try a long time ago lol, If i would have used my own wires and an iec I think it would have turned out much better.

One could also buy a colored extension cord or 14/3 wire (blue with a black sleeve) to get a different effect.

Said screw the beefy cables, I think they would have made it harder to braid anyways.
