Clarify wire size

Thanks in advance.
I don't really think I indicated wire size just stated that they were large.

To clarifly - high speed relay holder has two large brown wires 6mm (8awg) from fan motor and 2.5mm (12awg) going to resistor.

Whereas low speed relay holder has one 2.5mm (12awg) blue wire going to resistor. Now that relay holder also has two together much much smaller brown wires to ground relay coil when thermal or trinary switches are made.
