Just to be sure, you should read the following information very carefully, when evaluating concentric and eccentric knockouts:

Intresting have you seen any boxes or cabinets marked? I will be looking for them but I still probably still bond bush so not to upset an inspector who hasn't seen the marking, plus just assurance that it is bonded and be ease of mind.

+1 for the additional bonding.

The $8 in parts is worth more than 20 minutes proving your point to an inspector.

Just knock out the KO all the way and use reducing washers. They are UL listed for grounding. Save the cost of the bond bushings.
