We Were Going To Swap Out An Existing Alarm Panel And Look What We Found

A bit off topic, but I am sure a lot here can relate to this (either fire or burglar). A building added a new wing so we wired it up for fire. The current fire panel was pretty old and wasnt working for a while, so we were going to combine everything in one.

Take a look at the panel once we opened it. Notice anything funny?
