Working on a house that had an addition put on in the mid 90's. The new service panel is located in the basement of the addition. Looks like they tied in the old part of the house in an existing box with electrical tape and caps :vs_worry:

What would be a proper box to use to junction all these wires properly?

The only problem I see i the large ground that is not connected and may not need to be if it goes to the rods. That connection should be in the main panel.

Anyone think the ground is touching the aluminum in the one lug?

Something else that caught my attention in this "jbox" set up.
The incoming 2 legs and braided neutral on the left top side. The neutral braid is in a lug and the outgoing power there are two legs going out but with what seems to be a bare solid copper wire (in the lug with the braided neutral conductor) being used as the neutral going out instead of a braided or proper conductor to be used as a neutral.
