Jeff, I do not believe the neutrals are being fused as grounded conductors pers say...they do have some fused white wires but ... they are needing them for all those new 240 V ( nominal ) connections....
I would hope this panel was at worst sited that it is in need of an upgrade to meet all the NEW demands this panel is trying to serve.
Ewww....crappy way to do the joists.....I would have some clients who would say...Paul...it was here and is still here way before you were born...I say....hmm...does not make it right...just OLD...lol
And I will not begin to start on that fuse in the keyless......amazing what home owners will do.....
