I'm thinking of uncommon earth spots, places people wouldn't think of :)

Anywhere dude! I've got them on glovebox screws, steering column, in the boot... even one on the mount point between the seats for my center console :) But you're after creative? How about seatbelt anchors?

There is usually two main earth wires that make the whole chassis grounded. One is a fat cable bolted to the block and I like to add another cable around 8 guage to the chassis near the battery.

Basically anywhere on the car there is metal, it would be a good enough ground spot. If you want to ground something, scrape off paint if there is any to make a real good connection. Anywhere.

lol, deadset anywhere on the body, anything thats got a metal screw going into a mount on the body, or into the body itself, its an earth. i wired in an earth to a bolt under the drivers seat (for an amp) lol, i thought that was creative.

I did a similar thing in my old barge. I wired my ground to the frame under the seat.
