You're missing more than the deadfront, like a busbar... You really "want" this to pass an inspection??

I second Gregs post.. 86 the Zinsco for something current.

yes we are replacing the whole unit with a murray or square d the wiring is still untouched and its missing we were under the impression the orig had to be inspected before taking it down but I think we should be able to loose it

You forgot the bus support also. That POS will cost more to patch up then replacing,as it has outlived it's usefulness long ago....

PS: Zincso was only good for scrap metal anyway.
