Out Side 200 amp Meter Box with Breaker Slots


This is a old house that has a 100 amp breaker panel for front section of the house and 60 feet away has another 100 amp breaker panel. It would be very difficult to install a 200 amp breaker panel and do away with the second one . Someone jumped from the first panel to the second one using just 60 amp breakers for each panel.I found that there is enough 100 amp wire to run to the each 100 amp breaker panel to the 200 Amp Service panel on the house with the power Meter. that has breaker slots.
Question, would it be ok to put a 2 100 amp breakers here to power each panel I would like to know in detail the best way to do this, the house has been this way for 25 years with no electrical problems. Please contact me at billylothride@yahoo.com

what is "100 amp wire". I understand what you are referring to but what is the actual size of the wire?

It sounds like running from the 200 amp meter main is a possibility.
