Earthing/Grounding kit

Just purchased a grounding kit.
Anybody got a diagram or know where the fixing points are on the diesel.
I found some info on the accord site but cant see the pics.

Any advice would be much appreciated, thanks

Which grounding kit have you purchased?... I've got my eyes on a HKS one but i'm unsure as to fitment yet regarding the length of the leads. Hmmm.

TBH...whenever I wind my window down my revs fluctuate, and my lights dim if I am in neutral - so I bought this to cure that!
My lights do seem brighter (placebo!) and it is better to have more earthing points...and the biggest benefit IT LOOKS GOOD!

On the box it says - improves throttle response, MPG, so if it says it on the box it must be true
But I bought it to help with the grounding problem!
