I think the bond screw is just to the right of the large neutral lug.

Probably not but but the vast majority are green but it is not always real apparent. If you look back at my previous post I circled the bonding screw hole.

Yes but if you by that factory it may not be bent correctly for the right height. Just buy a grounding lug/terminal like this and use some #4 bare copper or #4 green insulated stranded copper. Use a machine screw not a sheet metal screw to mount to the panel back. The best thing is to just go to a electrical supply and get the correct bonding screw and install it

Thanks ,im going to use that style for grounding-going to neutral bar- you showed.Will there be any issues when inspected? Looked like pipe-metal- is grounding to the outside box but i still want to bond it via inside.
