Stereo & Electronics - simple amp question

Is there a really good place to hook up the ground ? Before I've always filed an area down, but would prefer something more professional this time around

Where are you going to put the amp? There's a ground lug for the tail lights behind the molded panel on the rear. There's also an extra threaded hole on the aluminum piece the power antenna is grounded into.

As close to the amp as possible.

It'll be in the rear hatch cubby hole. So there's a good ground off the lights?

I used the ground by the trunk latch. If you pull the molded carpet up around the trunk latch there is a ground with 2 small wires on it. I put my ground there and it is right next to my amp as I have my sub/amp in the low spot of the trunk. I can get pics if you want/need one.

Thanks but I found it. Never seen that spot before. Waiting on my stealth box, but figure I'll hook up my old system for the next week or so until I get it. Got the tear down pretty much done before it got too dark, so tomorrow after work just running the wires and hooking it up.
I got a couple more questions though.
1. I don't have my antenna hooked up anymore, what are some options I could do? I don't really know any direction to lead you in for what I'm thinking, just seeing what I could do with the old hook ups or anything.
2. I went ahead and removed my spare tire, I'm about to look up the stealth box in this area to see if there's a write up for it, but if not does anybody know what to do?
3. For my RMS wire, what's the best wire to hook it in to?

The prober way would be to frame cuts down on thermal issues signal issues alternator whine the list goes on drill a hole but and bolt to a clean bare metal piece of the undercarriage then seal over the connection with either rubberized undercoating at weatherized paint

No offense man, but that was one of the most confusing posts ever. But I mainly get what you're getting at. Anybody got some answers to my questions?

Here is an antenna idea for you...
As for your other questions I can't really help any. I have never installed a stealth box in a camaro but I always thought they mounted on the driver's side.
