Default Ground bus issue

Ok, I checked my ground bus on my 96 bonneville and the holder melted onto my metal...so I have to replace the holder, which I am unable to find anywhere here. Autozone said I have to get from junkyard, so I checked there with no luck. My question is this...is there a way to create your own ground so that I do not have to go without a vehicle.

i would just cut the wires back to were there is no corrosion and solder them all together. just make sure you get them good and warm to keep from getting a cold solder, and hit them with some anti corrosion like dielectric grease, terminal spray, or conformal coating
