grounds

I plan on installing several ground cable/straps this week. I plan to hook them up to shiny steel - my question is "how do you keep these areas from rusting? Do you paint over the connection after attachment - use oil - dielectric grease - what? Thanks

After you have obtained a clean paint free surface use a star washer between the surface and your ground strap before bolting it up. Yes you can paint over it after bolting it all together. You could add some dielectric grease but I see little value in that.

You could install a copper stud with a star washer and a double nut to attach your ground straps to it. Copper studs can be obtained from a starter rebuild shop or good auto electric store.
