    It looks like they are try to build an electro magnet. Other than the wires wound around the panel I cannot see much of what is going on. In sunlight/shadow cases like that it is best to have the flash on to get a better pic.

    Yeah couldn't get a better pic. When I opened the panel one of the breakers fell out. There were multiple wires that had been stripped back and not connected to any breakers. Almost like they were going to add something and then just decided not to.

    There is no deadfront cover, or breaker slot covers where missing circuits are; all of which leave energized bus exposed. Hopefully this panel was not on.

    At least the Asbestos siding will not catch fire when the panel does, And using a flash in sunlight does work well! Mabey he was a fireman working on the side. Nice coil job.

    Saved the posted Photos .

    Right clicked on the photo.

    Went to Open With.

    Chose Windows photo Gallery ( You may have another picture program. )

    Went to the top bar to Fix, Chose lighten and adjust.

    Your picture default program (what you open your pictures with) probably has a Fix Picture Feature.

    Now that some of the photo issues have been worked out, I'll start off with a couple of things. Obviously the panel needs a cover and..........is that a Challenger breaker in that GE panel?
