Why is it that most painters are clueless to the fact that we really don't wan't paint inside our panels???? & that there IS a reason for that!?!! (resistance).. This one looks like its working on its 2nd coat!
At least it has a separate ground bar!

The obvious problem with the paint aside, It bothers me to see a small panel such as this stuffed with all those tandem breakers. It seems like a method of cost cutting, instead of installing a nice full-sized panel with full size breakers, and at least a little room for growth.
Joe: I hope they didn't paint the buss connections as well!

It is a sub panel the equipment ground bar is in the left side so no issue there. It also is probably an 8/16 type panel. (Eight full size breakers or eight tandem breakers) so no problem there. I guess the main issue here is the paint.

The panel looks like a I-T-E panel, most C/B's are Bryant/ Westinghouse,I always cut a cover out of the box the panel came in but that will not stop some bozo from pulling it out, lazy painters w/ their airless and drywall hangers with a router get my blood boiling.
