Grounding Tail Lights with no White Wire

I've purchased some replacement tail lights for my Trillium 1300 from Princess Auto. They Unfortunately only have wires for the brake and signal lights, no white wire for ground. If I use one of the 2 wires for ground then I only have running or brake/signal lights. How do I add a ground so they function properly?

Thanks in advance

If the reflector is metal simply screw a ground, white, wire into the reflector
of other metal part of the light.

The mounting bolts are normally the ground. They assume you are mounting the lights to a steel trailer. Just put a loop terminal on a length or wire that is attached to your trailer frame and put the loop on one of the mounting bolts. Always scrap the paint off the frame where you attach the ground to ensure a good connection.
