Re: no ground
bob the metal of the lid should carry its own ground from the bolts on the hinges but if it was dismantled and painted, the bolts might not be making ground. 1st try a direct single wire to ground to make sure the light works.. then try a star washer under the hinge bolt. Or using a 2 wire set, just run the ground wire to another bolt or screw inside the trunk area under the package tray somewhere where the wire wont get pushed around by luggage.
