I have a question about that panel. Does the white coiled wire coming off the neutral-in-from-main terminal get connected to the ground terminal on the right, or is it connected to the yellow neutral terminal to the right of GFCI breaker switch?

Sorry, I don't know the exact terminology.

ilikethetrees, I only had a three wire dyer outlet that I am feeding this panel with. It has a bonded neutral and ground that is coming in through the feed. I believe this is essentialy "un-bonding" them. (I could be talking out of my a$$) I am moving in about 8 months so I didn't want to run a dedicated outlet, swap out a breaker and leave my hard work behind.

So the coiled white wire is connected to the neutral line that runs from the breaker to the load?

No. It goes from the incoming ground/neutral to the breaker then to the load. Take a look at the pic P-J posted on #2, it is clearer than the fuzzy ipod picture I have up. I will try to take some more pics today.

Thanks P-J. Couldn't have done it without all of the help you have provided. Numerous reads and re-reads of your posts and diagrams have given me the confidence to embark on this escapade. Thanks!!!

Probably a stupid question but once you get it hooked up and hot , is
there a good way to test it besides pushing the test button ?

Turn your panel on and spray it with water. Thats the only other way I would know of but I obviously wouldn't want to do it. As long as it works when you hit the "test" button, you should be good.
