Amp Mounting in Trunk

Upgrading my sound and I'd like to know if this location is suitable to drill through.
(Mounting amp to some MDF, need to secure MDF to the trunk.)



Also, would those bolts above the circle be decent grounding points or are they not part of the chassis?

P.S. Those one-time-use pillar clips are a PITA!

Thanks for the reply. Can confirm what you say.

I didn't want to drill into the frame itself so I just drilled holes into the trunk liner's thick plastic.
The amp sits on the red circle in my OP secured by nuts and machine screws.
It's fairly light and a class D so I don't expect an issue with heat or falling (same amp sat in my Lexus' glovebox with no issues).

I found that the metal around the rear deck is part of the chassis (basic continuity test with DMM) so I just used a vacant hole in the rear deck (seen in the top left of the image under the speaker, directly above the speaker harness). Sanded away the paint, got a good washer/bolt/nut combo to hold the ground in.
