In Response To: Aluminum Wiring (Steve Wyate)

You must only use outlets, switches, and breakers specifically marked for AL use only, or marked for AL (aluminum) or CU (copper) use...

It would be a wise investment to have a qualified electrician do your work for you or at least intepret the existing codes for you and advise you how to proceed. Improper wiring of aluminum is a much more serious fire hazard than copper can ever be.
