Grounding Bar Extension

I am adding two 20 amp circuits for my two bathrooms. I have a Murray Breaker panel and need some more room for common and ground wires. The instructions on a Cutler-Hammer ground bar kit show mounting it and no connection to the existing neutral bar. My thoughts are to mount the extension bar to the panel box with the machine screws provided and run a #4 wire from the neutral bar to the new extension bar. When I have the inspector for the rough inspection I will show him what I plan but would like opinions. Thanks for the help.

sounds good to me, I do not like letting the panel carry the ground.

Thanks jwhite. With the jumper it appears that I could use the extension bar for common wires also.

Good if you're talking about the panel that contains your main disconnect. Bad if you're talking about a subpanel.
