Default Sq D NEHB Panel Question

Has anyone ever done a Cutler Hammer, or any other brand, panel guts upgrade for the old Sq D NEHB panels? I have an account I picked up that is loaded with these panels, and were doing some additions. My vendor sent me the quote sheet, just curious on cost.

Those the ones with the flexible bolt on tabs? I have done a few retro fit panels and they are nice. If I recall, they were more money than a new panel, but then you don't have to remove the panel, so there is labor savings to be had not pulling back wiring, cutting conduits, disassembly, etc. They aren't something you are going to get tomorrow and are best suited to planned jobs. Not a bad way to go. Take your measurements, lists of breakers needed and submit the info.

I know, there is ~15 panels in and around the building. I'll quote the one I need to work on for the small remodel and discuss the issue with the rest.

The ones I rehabbed were Trumbull recessed in concrete block. There was no other way. If you have time to plan and they can produce what you need, its a great way to go.

The housing units I work on regularly have a bunch of FPE bolt ins and stab ins. Would be perfect for those, especially the distribution panels that have conduits top and bottom. Waiting for the subsidizing agencies to mandate. It'll happen eventually.
