Look at the circuilt boards on the lamp clusters, you will find one common path that goes to all bulbs on it. This is your earth. You need to connect a wire to this path, then the other end of the wire to a point on the cars bosy to earth it. Anything with a screw thread will do - mounting points for trim etc provided it is attached directly to the bcars body. You could self tap a screw into the body if you wanted. Ensure both ends are clean and paint free. This should sort it! Job done
