Question Will this work for a good ground for my amp?


It's just in this little hump thing in the back of my 93.

It should work as long as the screw isn't screwed into a rusty hole. If it doesn't work all youll have to do is find another hole to mount it to.

Okay. I'm always confused with grounds because they always say "chassis ground" and I'm pretty sure that's not my chassis hahah

On every vehicle I've owned I have always grounded it using the floor pan. Just like you did the only difference is i sanded the spot and then wire washer screw. And I've never had a problem with it.

Just to make sure it's a secure ground, sand off the paint in the area where the ring terminal makes contact.

x2, remove any paint so that the ring gets a solid ground. it may work without doing so, but it wont be a solid ground.
