My suggestion would be to use either EMT or plastic conduit. Ok now for the caveat...depending on your local code. If this is for yourself then code, schmode! Do it do it's safe. If its for a customer well, use your best judgement.
Anyway, there are knockouts in the electrical panel. Usually on the top bottom and sides. You may have to remove a section of the wall to access it but it's there. If not you can buy a greenlea punch. They're pricey but harbor freight has them too at beyond half price. Sometime they're colloquially called a "slug buster".
Hope this helps!
Great idea......until he goes to sell the house and the home inspectors start flagging things. More and more people are starting to get wise to this sort of thing with the huge amount of shows on t.v with people getting screwed buying houses not up to standards.
Not to mention if its in the code its there for safety reasons.
Sarcasm is my friend
I'm here to learn too, i do mostly commercial/industrial/new construction and this place is a great way to pick up tips on residential from some good electrical minds. Excuse the spelling, my phone has a mind of it's own.
