79-85/86 dash harness ground

After doing some continuity and resistance tests, it seems that I have a bad ground or poor connection on the dash harness. I always get continuity but on a few items I'll see a resistance of 3.5ohms or so.

I have been able to find one ground with two 16-18ga wires to the right of the throttle pedal bracket, but it heads over to the passenger side kick panel. I would think that there is one closer to the driver's side kick panel. I had the instrument cluster out to see if there was anything to see. No dice other than the one I had previously mentioned.

Everything under the hood has good continuity and good resistance values. Battery terminals are clean and tight.

Much thanks.
