This is my first post of photos and I'm still learning how to work with picture files.

The attached photos show a remodel on a small store where two of the sub panels are located inside the walls that the owner put up.

Alan,
Thanks for the pics. [Linked Image]
I sure hope that that panel never overheats.
Looks like it's surrounded by all the flammable materials known to Man.

At least he left you doors, right? Though, he did sort of "miss" with that one covered by the shutter. You almost need a Sawzall to change any breakers on that left-hand buss. [Linked Image]

That second panel looks like it has already been through a fire. Wow.

About the only good thing I can say is that a tool was required to open the louvered door. Unless that drywall screw in the last photo was just a handle...
