Why would the homeowner NOT want to upgrade to a bigger service panel?? and yeah you need to separate those grounds out. and if you buy a new sub panel it should come with a new ground bar.

Read all the small print on the labels, there might be a catalog # for a ground bus. If there is, there should be some holes in the can for its installation. of course, if you're dealing with an antique, that info might not be there.

Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example.

I would get rid of the sub panel and extend those lines to reach the new larger upgraded panel if at all possible. If you do need to mount a new bar then yes drill and tap!!!
