Some may say you've got too much copper showing on the lugs.

jbfan, Thanks. And thanks again to everyone in this thread for their oversight and direction.

I only needed 80', so buying a 250' spool of green #8 was a huge waste of money when a role of six colored tapes costs $3.

In the end, there's no question which side of the main panel and sub panel are neutral / ground.

But by NEC code you are not allowed to remark wire smaller then #4
I buy green by the foot, not rolls for my house
