never showed wired light
You never showed the wiring to the light it self. I would of like to see if white went to white and red or black would of went. This would be a 3 way switch, power to the left of the light power going in, and a switch to the right of the light. As looking light in middel and switches left to right power from the left going to the light in the middle.
