    I think I was nice.One other note when you change a main Panel in to a sub panel as someone suggested it isn't as easy as just changing the feeder. It requires some other work to make it a safe and code compliant installation. But I am sure the people who are qualified professionals know what is to be done to achieve that. So I will spare us all a long drawn out description on how to accomplish this task. Be sides I do not think that is googleable ( is that a word)? LOL

    After, the breaker move would that then make the fed. pac. panel a junction box?
    I'm not sure if the actual enclosure could stay and be used for a junction box ... I'm thinking this wouldn't be an approved enclosure for that purpose.

    I'm guessing ..... what do the experts think?

    I have done it in a Appartment complex and we screwed the door shut to make it a lid. I didnn't like the looks but in passed the inspection.

    Using the old panel as a splice box is pretty common 'round these parts as well. But, who knows, might find a mounty knocking on your door doing that up nort.

    With that being a Fed.Pac. box, I wouldn't even use it for a sub panel. Might make a secret hiding place if it was gutted.

    You can purchase locks that fit panel boxes. Might be one around for a Fed Pac panel..
