Default Wiring 3 batteries and 2 amps?

Okay, I was just wondering..my last setup I had the ground go from my D3100 batt to the frame and the ground from the amp going to the ground on the battery. Everything worked fine. I didn't see much voltage drop...but since I'm going for SQ, I want to make sure I do everything right. AS much as I want to eliminate drilling holes into my car...is this the best way to wire all of these:

Picture contains 2 back up batteries 1 starter battery, 2 amps and a processor.
Please correct me if I'm wrong or tell me some other ways I can wire this to eliminate putting more holes into the frame of my car.

X2, then just wire up the amps to the closest battery.

Battery is in the trunk (at least on the 10 Challenger). Gotta love Dodge. They have a factory 1ga-ish positive ran already.
