ok you have to identify one of the three wires on both ends and make sure it's the exact same wire...hook it to your neutral in both the other two wires that are the same size will hook up on the breaker that you have added inside your old panel to feed the sub panel and then on the main of the subpanel(these will be your hot wires)..take the one with the green stripe and it will go to your ground post in both panels...make sure that you have all power disconnected when you do this, because this could be very dangerous...hook them up in this order....ground..neutral..then the two hot wires
