Question-Do you think it would be beneficial to "rough up" the metal connectors more like with sandpaper prior to application? BTW,I have a 2ml sample coming to me from you so I just wanted your thoughts on this
One of the stated reasons for the ability of these contact enhancers to work is that they fill up micro gaps in the metal and create more surface contact. Roughing it up would likely be the opposite of what you would want to do. T456

I wouldn't rough it up. Even if it was finely polished to our eyes, at a microscopic level it's pretty uneven.
I upgraded my outdoor Grounding Rod System with a larger gauge wire a few years ago and it made a very nice sonic improvement, mainly a lower noise floor...
I took in the Grounding Rod Clamp to Home Depot to find the larger AWG size .
I think it was a 8 AWG or a 6 AWG...
I used MSA Graphene Contact Enhancer on both ends of the outdoor Grounding Rod Wire...
Wonderful results seen in both Audio and Video...
