paint in panel

From today's inspection.

When it comes to contaminated bus bars, this takes the cake. I pulled a couple of breakers and sure enough; Not only was the bus bars painted, the fools then installed breakers on them.

No wonder my 3 prong tester was doing weird flickering.

Call for replacement of the panel board.

That is usually what I do, especially in a case like this.

I kinda figured but lacking the smiley face, someone lurking here could think you were serious about scraping. [:(] [:)]

PS I have yet to pull a breaker during an inspection. That is outside of my comfort zone. Actually, I am prohibitted from performing work in a panel. I need to be a licensed sparky to do that.
