Default On my way to this today

This is for an illegal three family home around the corner from me, getting an upgrade and sub on the second floor. Bought GE 32/40 and 8/16 panel yesterday.

I hate when jackasses replace the panel and mount it as high to the plate like that. I know almost every conductor it that box will need to be extended. One tenant is a pain in the ass, asking too many questions as if he owns the joint.

Sometimes filing papers for an inspection alerts the building dept. and opens up a can of worms for the building owner..

I don't know of any laws that punish the EC for not filing for inspection..

Here on Long Island each little town where Doc is working has their own rules and regulations..

Sometimes it is better to do the work like a panel change and not get it inspected..

'Round here, they'll cancel your license. Kinda cramps your style after that.

What's this permit you speak of?

Sometimes it's better to ask for forgiveness rather than permission.
