JH,
Don't know about your wages in Ohio,but allow yourself about 4 hours to complete the job plus materials and markup.You can change the panel out(most) alot quicker than that,but you still have to alllow for time spent at supply house,travel time to job,cleanup,etc.

BTW.How was your trip to Lubbock?Are we getting another New Texan ?

Just got back from looking at the panel its an older ITE 200amp breaker box, half the CB are missing or bad. He wants me to put in a new box and hook the loads back up. This is in an old service station that he is going to use as a garage and his son is going to paint in it. what are the going rates for some 200amp panels 40ct.and the best and worst ones in your mind. i recommended Square D

THE PANELS I LIKE BEST ARE SQUARE-D QO AND THE MAJORITY OF THE PEOPLE I WORK WITH AND TALK TO SAY THE SAME. THEY ARE ABOUT $130.00 TO $150.00 AROUND HERE DEPENDING ON WHERE YOU SHOP. NEVER HAVE HAD A PROBLEM WITH THEM YET.

ANOTHER QUESTION THAT POPS IN IS THE FEED FOR THIS PANEL.

"Just got back from looking at the panel its an older ITE 200amp breaker box, half the CB are missing or bad."

ALOT OF THE "OLDER" SERVICE FEEDS I RUN INTO ARE NOT COMPLIANT WITH CODE NOW. AND IT SOUNDS LIKE THERE HAVE BEEN PROBLEMS WITH THIS BOX BEFORE THE ONE THAT MADE THE OWNER WANT TO UPGRADE. I AM NOT SAYING YOU DID NOT ALREADY LOOK AT THIS, JUST MAKING SURE. EVEN IF THEY ARE "UP TO SNUFF" I CHANGE THEM TO THE METER ANYWAY BECAUSE OF AGE. NEVER CAN BE TO CAREFUL.

feed for the panel looks good and not that old. I think the panel is in bad shape but the owner told me he rented the place out to a guy who had a tire shop and the guy did abunch of his own wireing and messed up CB and pulled some so on so on. the feed is ok put in a new panel and run new wires for flouresent lights, 220v welder, 220v compressor, and a couple receptacles is all he is doing. so iam going to help him get the new panel in and get him squared away on his ckts.

"to use as a garage and his son is going to paint in it."

I hope you mean with a roller or a brush only. If he's thinking about spraying, he'll need a booth, or you'll need to look at hazardous location stuff. Any way you go, that's really expensive, booth or service.

FYI:

About two and a half years ago, I had the house upgraded to 200 amp service. The drop wire from the power company's transformer was able to handle it without being replaced.

New meter, Square-D Homeline Load Center and labor came out to about $1,400. That's in Northern NJ.
