Any convienient place to ground a 0 gauge wire from battery?

I have a 2012 GT and I'm running 0 gauge to my trunk and need to ground the battery properly. At quick glance it looks like I'm going to have to move some stuff out of the way to see better. I'm hoping someone can save me a little time and recommend me a bolt to use.

Finally have some time off to finish this.

Wow. I must've been tired. If I had only got off my rolling stool and LOOKED I would've seen a perfect tab on the strut tower where the existing ground goes.

Anyone know if the rear seat bracket or seat belt bolt is a good place to ground? I read somewhere that the bolt the seat belt went through is a poor choice.

Also, 120+ views and no response? Really? What exactly is anyone expecting to see when I'm posting the question in the title?

Good Ground for Amp Wire.

I used the middle bracket that holds the back of the seat bottom, in the the rear of the car. I drilled a hole big enough to hold a medium size screw, sanded the area to get bare metal contact; and attached the ground wire. Using the bracket avoided having to drill through the actual body of the car. Worked fine for me.
