At least there is a window close to help vent some of the blast from the explosion if one occurs!!! I have customers ask me if their panel is safe because it is missing one screw on the cover. Never seen a panel with a gas line nearly inside it.

I usually dont say too much but this time what the heck (not what i wanted to say) were they thinking. I cannot belive this. Everytime i think this is the best hack job in the world you guys come up with this. TOTALLY UNBELIVEABLE Please let us know how this turned out. I am absolutley at a loss for words. A priceless picture that i copied for my old age. UNBELIVEABLE
That gas connector is NOT supposed to pass through walls and should be exposed for its entire length, and it's a old one too. Hacked up electrical "work" and gas lines do not go well together or seperate.

I'm with NORCAL on that one. Those copper-colored gas-flexes are an accident looking for a place to happen. We have had numerous fire calls from those things splitting apart when flexed once too often, or put into a bind - kinda like the one shown. Hiding it away inside a wall cavity is like burying your head in the sand.
It kinda looks like the gas was there long before the electric.

A while back there was even a worse example of a gas/electric conflict posted here, but I couldn't find it in a search. In that case, an electrical service conduit was in place first, and then the gas fitter came by and NOTCHED the conduit (with conductors inside!) so he could run his gas pipe through the same space.
Looks like the electrician forgot the bushing on that service cable fitting, as well....
