Except for the spice rack thing, I kinda like it.

Hell, I usually have to look behind artwork or family photos hung on the walls. How many amps was the service? I count no fewer than 25 breakers in this spicy panel... Talk about adding sizzle to a meal!

Let's kick it up... a notch!!! Bam!!!

When you run across a panel like this, do you wrestle with the cover trying to take it off, or just advise them of the problem. I've had some like that one where I almost dropped the cover into the panel trying to wiggle it out the door.

Did you notice the inspection sticker on the inside of the door? Do you think it was approved inside a prior cabinet?
