Breakshot owners, check your ground

Over the weekend I discovered that the head ground of my Breakshot
wasn't connected to the cabinet ground. It's not just that something
is loose or broken; I couldn't even find where it was *supposed* to
connect. I'm curious as to whether all Breakshots (or even all
Capcoms) are like this, or if I have an oddball machine.
It hasn't been an issue in the decade I've owned the game, but I went
ahead and made three new ground braid connections just to be safe.
1 & 2: From bottom nut of head hinge, to playfield slide rail screw,
about four inches down, both sides of cabinet.
3: From t-nut of right backbox bolt, to existing ground braid, about
two inches to the right. I pried the t-nut loose a little to slide in
the new braid section, hammered it back, and added a wood screw where
the new braid intersects the existing path. This was a little awkward
to reach, being on the underside of the cabinet neck.
