I recently purchased a home that had gone through foreclosure and the prior owners had done a little sabotage on their way out the door.
All the breakers in a 2002 upgraded 200amp Square D QO panel had been removed and all distribution wiring was cut in the panel. Some on the wire was left a length that it still reaches the breakers and neutral/ground bars, most doesn't.
It's all of a length that it could be nutted and extended in the panel. With additional ground bars installed high in the panel, no neutrals or grounds would have to be spliced.
All the wiring leaves the top of the panel and is accessible from the attic.
Can splice boxes be installed in the attic or is splicing in the panel suitable?
