splice in electrical box

I am changing a fuse box over to a breaker box (secondary unit so I a master disconnect in the primary panel) And some of the wires are not long enough to reach the breakers. I need to splice a small piece in and don't know if it is code to do the splice directly in the box or if I need to put a juntion box in the attick and do the splice there. Anyone out there know the proper way?

I believe you are allowed to do the splice right in the panel.

You can make splices in panels.
