Grounding the CB

So today I finally got around installing my cb and I ran into a problem, I dont know where to ground it. I used to have my old one grounded to the seat frame/bracket bolt but when I switched to buckets I used an air wrench and now I cant get the sucker out... where did you guys ground yours????

I guess I should have said that all my wires are in the back of the cab, behind the seats...

Just drill a hole if you have to, I used my seat brackets.

On a CB you want to make your ground as short as possible.
