Drill a hole and use a bolt and nut to hold your ground cable to bear metal. I have never seen an amp with gray wires. Are they coming out of the amp?

it can be bad to pinch any wire. that can create a voltage drop and cause problems.

ground is the wire u least have to worry about.. so u dont even need insulation on your ground wire, unless u are runing it side by side with positive...
I would'nt worry too much about pinchin the ground, but I would worry ALOT about pinchin any other wire...
