    Now that I have my 2000GTL working properly I would like to install a 3 prong grounded plug. My question is were should i place the ground wire the radio? Most I just terminate to the chassis but Im not sure about the 2000GTL.

    Watch for ground loops! System should have common ground bar and radio, amps, switches, meters, etc should have short braided wire to a ground bus which leads outside to ground bar. Refer to Heil sound to explain deeper. Good luck.
