Does everything look good in this photo for my new sub panel besides what hasn't been wired yet? Mainly the wiring to the two breakers I installed? Didn't realize the neutral connects to silver screw on breaker instead of the neutral bar for the new combo GFCI/AFCI breaker. That's new to me.

can I leave this connection the way it is in that case or do they both have to run to neutral ground bar?

I wouldn't leave it, they are both supposed to be on the neutral bus.

Does the new sub panel wiring to breakers look fine? Just wanted to check before I finish all 8 circuits for my addition.

in my main panel, where I'm going to be terminating my 4 guage neutral wire on the neutral/ground bar, the ground bar itself has the smaller size lug terminals that are similar in size to the picture of my new sub panel ground bar in below photo. Is it safe to connect a 4 gauge stranded wire to this smaller lug terminal? If not, where do I buy this to complete the task at hand?

thanks

Typically a ground.or neutral bar will accept up to a #4 without an adapter.

I did find this information on the little green and white sticker in a ground bar kit out at lowes today. Thanks for the help also.
