A picture tells a thousand words. Get that panel out. You have nothing to work with keeping it. Forget the sub panel. Install a new 200 amp service with a good brand name panel. ( Square D) would be an excellent choice. That picture seals the deal for me IMO.

Since they are before the 100A main?

I believe those lugs were put on at sometime to allow the panel to be used as a MLC (sub-panel). I don't know if they are factory installed.
