Grounding location for stereo

777 5
I am in the process of installing a stereo in my car and am trying to figure out a good ground location. Where are you grounding your system? There are a couple of small ground points behind the trim in the trunk, but I'm not sure if that is sufficient. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks. I've read backseat seat belt bolt, ground on the rear well, under the spare tire, and make a ground with a bolt and grinding off the paint. I'm not certain about the ground on the rear wheel well, it looks pretty small and already has a couple of grounds on it. The wire I have is not flexible enough to be used for the spare tire and I would have to cut a hole in a trim panel and I would like to avoid that. Which leaves making a ground and using the seat belt bolt.

I haven't done an install in a Cruze, but I usually use somewhere under the spare tire in the trunk for a negative ground.
What do you do for your positive grounds :unsure:
