Default Any good fusebox grounding points on 15+ Impreza?

I'm trying to find a suitable grounding point near the driver's footwell fusebox on my 2015 Impreza Premium Sedan. I have a proper fuse tap, but I can't find anywhere nearby that will serve as a good ground. I don't even think I'll break 5A with this setup as I'm only powering a couple dash cams (eventually I'll add two more, but for now it's just the two). Is there somewhere I can tap into near the fusebox that won't require drilling metal? Concerned about rust long-term.

There's a bolt underneath the OBDII port and a bolt on the driver's side seat track. I'm running my dashcam and footwell lights off of these w/o any issues.

OBDII bolt sounds perfect! Will check it out, thanks!

EDIT:
Actually, I have footwell lights too, totally forgot about those. Could tap into the same spot even.

I grounded out my Dashcam on the bolt that the hood release attaches on to.
