no your not, its painted and not good for grounding. Best thing to do it to drill a hole and bolt it down, or screw it

^-- :word: The ground wire should connect to a bolt through the sheetmetal via a nut a lock washer. Remember to sand around the hole, the ground needs to touch bare metal. :imo

A nice big dab of electrolytic grease. Every few months - inspect and if necessary unbolt, clean and freshen everything up with a wire brush - regrease.

The Ground is the most important part of your high current, amplified audio system.
