Personally I'd be earthing direct from battery to the engine and then one in the boot. So two main cables returning to engine bay.

I have mine does as....earted in engine bay....2x power wires from engine bay to single xgauge in 4 guage out distribution block.....4 guage thru firewall etc down to boot then onto a solenoid...the power from main batt is linked to this and batt is earted to chasis. (in your case 4guage striaght down to batt....and batt earthed to chasis as short a distance as possible and to bare metal - clean earth...also 4 guage (keep earths same cable guage or larger never smaller)
