I do same as KG5U I think...
Whatever method you develop stick to it - for all your multi-wire
connections... i.e. I use the heavy conductors in order by the
resistance color code...then all the remaining based on the resistor
color code...note - when I say by that code I do not mean matching the
corresponding number from the code BUT the same order...i.e. OYG (orange
yellow green) are in that order but they are not necessarily on location
numbers 3 4 and 5
