Wire-nutted extensions INSIDE the panel are allowed, I do believe.

What you really need to do, is go buy a Wire Stretcher.

Danger mouse, it depends on local AHJ if they like that as a fix or not. Some frown on that practice, especially if they have a hair up their rear when inspecting home owner builds or mods to a system.

They may frown on it, but unless a local code prohibits, the NEC allows it.

1. When you stretch a wire, it gets thinner and therefore won't carry as many amperes.
2. It is impossible to grip the last few feet of a current carrying conductor and stretch it without breaking the insulation.

It is okay to splice on a short length of wire (a pigtail) so the circuit whose wire is already inside the panel can be connected the terminal you want.
