or place ground connection on the middle pair lytics

edit, which is basicly the same as what you show in the picture just posted now

Or this? White wire is ground. This looks cleaner to me and saves space because it keeps to caps closer together. Bad idea?

good

you know, for the +/- connect, you can 'open' those spades, and mount that same nice thick solid core copper wire in a 90degr angle on them

or simply 'fold' a small piece of copper plate around the wire
which i think would be optimal

If you go with a large copper between the 6 caps the resistance between each would be very small . This also give you an area to connect the other ground to . The resistance of a sheet of 2 mm copper would be hard for most to measure point to point at any where near the current it will see.

OK, back to what I am calling the "center" star ground. Does this look like a reasonable way to install the resistors and snubber caps? Anybody see anything wrong?

I don't recommend a "star" for multiple smoothing capacitors.
I much prefer taking the input at one end of the string and taking the output from the other end of the string. The return for each flow string should follow as closely as possible.

The big loop in each of the R & L halves emits emi. And the Star in mo way helps to reduce the size of those loops.
