Also, hopefully this is obvious, but some people may not realize it: if you want your entire machine to be safely connected to earth ground, you’re also going to need to remove paint where the screws attach the base to other metal parts of the machine. Otherwise, only your base will be earthed!
The wire color will have no functional impact as long as everything is properly connected, but I wanted to point out that as far as I know, the international standard for a chassis ground (earth) wire is green with a yellow stripe.
