I chose to mount my battery ground [-] cable to the main longeron. My decision is based on the fact that this is the only longeron that goes all the way to the firewall. That means that it will reach my "forest of tabs" ground block [mounted on firewall] going through the minimum number or riveted connections. It also does not require drilling any extra holes into the longeron. I just use longer rivets there. See
