pre inspection

Will i have issues at inspection on this main panel with its original location(bath) ?
Id never have set up this way but they werent as strick in early 80s(building codes)
It has the NEC sticker of 1981 inside panel box .i havent done chart for breakers ID on panel yet.I have reorganized breakers with 2 spare at bottom left.
I am hoping it can be considered grandfathered/built that way, but not counting on it. It is in Tn..
-will load pics soon..
Any info is appreciated

I don't have ANY idea what they are going to actually say, but I don't believe that was EVER legal. My guess is that bathroom was added without a permit.

What did you do that requires an inspection? If it has anything to do with that box or that room you are definitely going to have problems with the inspection!
