bonded!

I finally got the panel bonded in both spots to be double sure its secure(that green screw did not reach back of box when filly screwed in to neutral bar had to use regular one with spacer).Got neutral bar bonded to panel via#6 copper wire.
Also grounded at pipe and used anti corrosion on the aluminum connection(not the copper pipe).Name:  IMAG0156.jpg

FYI - most locations around here require the water pipe bond the go around the water meter with a clamp on both sides. This wire should be continuous (In case you have a meter inside)

Also, have you installed a ground rod? Might as well do that too.

I hope your screw you used for the lug on the case of the panel is not a self tapping/sheet metal screw but one that has a 32 thread. (IE: 10-32)

What kind of screw did you use to make the bond?

Time warp again!
