Given all the other violations, what's the chance that the 2-gang receptacle box is fed by a properly wired GFCI receptacle? It doesn't look like like any of the breakers are GFCI, at least in the picture as I can see it.

Rlrct: Beleive me that garage complies now...every single inch has been inspected....every single inch [Linked Image] EDIT: Sorry, I mis-read your post. You are corect, the receptacles were not GFCI. Good catch.

As far as the conductors go, I think they bought a length of SER cable and just stripped the sheathing off it [Linked Image] I guess they thought the jacket was just to hold the conductors in place until you bought them at the store? [Linked Image]

Wait till they buy some UF cable, that 'packaging' is pretty tough to open. [Linked Image]

OMGGGG!! The things I missed while my computer was down!!! I called one of my electrician friends in northern California to see this, he about laughed up a lung! The bond bushing & Dottie plates here are priceless! I wonder if this guy was following that "1914 Electricians Handbook" from a previous post! I'm seriously curious for Joe T. to comment on this one, he's probably got something worse he's come across.... Can't be much worse!

Correct me if i'm wrong but couldn't this installation been done by running the nipple from the service equipment right into the back of the MLO panel?

This main danger with this installation, is the inspector can have heart failure from laughing.

I nearly did. When I opened the door and saw this, I didn't know whether to laugh or cry, ya know?
