I like the ground wire fix plan too. I just cleaned mine and added one grounding connection and it helped a little. Important also to clean the connecting spots with a little sandpaper, exposing just a little metal for contact. And use a little grease to seal out water and prevent corrosion too. Like you said, ... can't hurt.
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
