Correct - best is to clean the chassis contact points down to bare metal, use clean or new hardware (the OEM stuff is usually black oxide, which doesn't conduct well. Use bright zinc-plated stuff. Or brass, bronze, or CRES,) and apply a corrosion inhibitor on assembly.

It's amazing how many electrical problems I've traced back to shonky grounds over the years...
