That's where I would suggest grounding as well, under the seat bottom right by one of the seat belt bolts. you want you ground point to be on the main uni-body structure of the car. Pick a spot right next to one of the seat belt bolts, get a wire brush wheel that you can attach to a drill and go to town on the paint, you want to have a 1"x 1" square of completely bare metal where you are going to screw your ring terminal down.

Watch this for more advise.
