Question where to ground?

Installing a sound system and everything is hooked up except for the amp ground. in the trunk with the carpet out i see 2 circular things towards the seats on the trunk floor with about 5 screws in each, neither of which seem to be "ground material" and i dont see any other place to ground it, where can i? when i tried those screws the subs didnt hit but when i rubbed the ground wire against any part of the chassy it did work so i know the amp/subs are functional, do i have to drill in the chasse for a ground?

not completely sure, but you might try the strut towers. Don't know if they're groundable, but its worth a look on the forums.

If those humps are toward the center of the car they are part of the gas tank system. I drilled a small hole in the wheel well area and ran my ground wire there.
