      I forgot the exact lengths, you can find them in YoungSmiths build thread. I don't recall off the top of my head, as I haven't completed those on my Dart yet.

      Has anyone tried one ground at a time to see if there is a weak link?

      ie. Do an 8G body ground and see what happens.

      Do an 8G mtr ground and see what happens.

      Not saying doing them all is a bad idea, as you can never have too good of a ground. Just curious...…..

      I was at a self serve junkyard yesterday. There were 3 Darts. I noticed one had an intact battery ground cable and pulled it. The center terminal is attached to a body stud. The stud and nut were painted. Not sure how the factory does that without painting the cable. Then how did the factory tighten that nut with out damaging the paint while tightening the nut. Removing that nut damaged the paint. Pics:

      The Dart was in a front end wreck and the fender, bumper cover, and wheel well splash shield were gone. Pretty sure the wheel well splash shield would be all that would need to be removed to get access to this nut to clean it up and make this ground all that is really needed.

      *UPDATE*

      It's been almost 2 weeks since I installed the ground wire upgrade. I still have NOT had any touchscreen reboots/lockups since then.
