I have a situation where the interior panel cover for the breakers does not fit over the main breaker. As you can see in the picture the breaker would probably fit with some trimming or cutting off and adding a piece of cover to fit. Is it within the code to modify a panel enclosure if it covers al the areas and has the right spacing. It seems all I would have to do is cut off the area around the breaker around the handle. I guess what I am asking is it ok to modify a panel to fit breakers. I am in Afghanistan and a contractor is telling me that he will have to replace the whole panel because of code restrictions. I know myself that I have cut and trimmed to fit breakers in enclosures and this is no different. Just want an opinion.
