Default Help for correct grounding a Dared VP-845


I have a question to all tube-amp and Dared specialists.
After heraring a lot of tube-amps an experiences with a Dynavox VR-70, I decided to buy a Dared VP-845. I can only afford a used one so I bought a used VP-845 of a seller in Malaysia. He promised me itīs a European version with a CE sign.
After a while I received my VP-845, the CE sign is on the amp but after a check with a multimeter I diagnosed theat the ground cable isnīt connected. I opened the amp and saw that all ground cables are inside but only the contact of the socket isnīt connected.
Now I have the question, where have I to connect the socket?
At the screw of the chassis or maybe at the board next to the contact?
Here are some pictures from the inside or does anybody have a picture of a correct grounded VP-845?

Here is the inside of my Dared 845.

A little different inside than yours, but similar. My ground is connected to the chassis.

Hallo John,

thank you very much.
Ist it possible to send me the picture in a bigger version.
Especialy the area of the input socket and the grounding of the chassis?
I canīt understand that my chassis is grounded but it isnīt connected to the socket.
Could be the consequence grounding noise?

Thank you for your help.
