Depends where you are fitting your battery, there are earth points all over the van to jump onto, if there isn't one where you are putting your battery, clean the paint off of a bit of metal, check continuity to the battery earth, bolt your earth terminal on and Bob's your mother's. This is where mine earth's to.Image

Excellent cheers, that's where I'm going to mount the battery in the little hollow to the rear of the wheel arch. Going to run one long wire from the battery and keep all electrics in this corner is my plan. Cheers!

Same place mine is located, seems the best place for it so I don't loose too much space!

No mate, just on top of rear offside wheel arch, then boxed in.
