Default spotlights wiring

Hi I bought 2328 kuryakyn wiring harness. Please help mi with connection of the cables. I understand that black wires go to ground minus terminal and white cable to positive terminal on the battery. Red cable form the switch goes to some 12V cable or direct to positive terminal. There are two cables to each spotlight. White is power and black is ground. How should I connect the black one? Instuctions say to connect them to ground chasiss ot bare metal. I am a little confused how to connect the black ground cable. There are two cables from the bulb. White is power, one is ground. So, should I connect the ground form bulb with black from switch and than to chasis or how? If someone could send some picture or a simple scheme how to conect the cables, it would be great. Thank you.

I have the same harness to install so I looked up a vid for you and I bookmarked it for me It's showing the installation of a different light bar but uses the same harness and goes into detail on how to connect it.

I used the same harness. I attached the two ground wires to the bolts that hold the lightbar to the mounting plate.

Ok, but what about the lower end of these two cables ended with ring terminal? this end should be connected to minus terminal of the battery?
