ID this grounding strap?

I removed the entire fuse/CDI panel (3 small screws) on the left side of the engine bay to get better access to the CDI (left the CDI attached to the panel. Upon reinstalling it, i saw this grounding strap laying there. i traced it back behind the fuel filter and accumulator then i can't see where it goes. Does anyone know what his strap gounds and better yet, where should it be grounded to? someone said it doesn't get grouded on the lugs that holds the panel in place (not a good grounding place anyway) but i don't see anywhere else it could be grounded to.

There is a lug near the CDI mounting point. Mine was closer to the fuel filter but I believe that there is also one behind the relay panel. Any lug sticking out of the inner body panel will work that has a copper colored flat surface. You might have to use a little sand paper to see the copper color.
Another trick I use is to see how long the ground strap is and swing it around in an arc and see all the points that it will reach to.

Thanks for the info. Based on this information i should have left it alone. when i saw it siting there before i put the panel back on the first time, i arched the strap and it was the correct length to fit on the lug directly below the CDI and behind the panel. so i went ahead and attached it behind the panel on that lug. Then i took it back off to shoot the picture. now i remounted it on the same lug but in front of the panel like in Bill's picture where i can see it.

now if can find away to remove the "green wire" from the distributor w/o having to remove the distributor.
