Replace front panel of circuit breaker box

Mind if I steal this thread for a question? I'm flipping a condo with an old GE circuit breaker box and would like to replace the front panel. I don't see any of the circuit breakers, or anything directly attached to the front panel. Can I make this cosmetic switch or is their connections I don't know about?

Normally the cover has no connection to any of the panel internals. It simply screws to the enclosure.

Of course there is the ever proverbial question......why? Is it non functional? Damaged? Rusted? Just curious.

Unless the cover is destroyed.... you will most likely need to keep using.
It's nearly impossible to locate old panel covers.
