Default Grounding for monoblocks using single external supply

Hello all,

For my gainclone project I intend to have two amplifier chassis' with a single shared external supply. I am going to use the PSU layout in the attached image.

I am wondering what kind of grounding arrangement I need to use. Do I give PG- and PG+ their own separate wires from the PSU to each amp and run an independent ground cable from the star ground in the PSU chassis to each amplifier chassis'? Some advice here would be great.
