It's overkill, but I still do it on every rivet.
It gets messy, but knowing I did it satisfies my OCD.
Everything else sounds like you're doing it right.
One thing I noticed (so for future endeavors)... it looks like you're using solid wire (normal "house construction" 12/2). You really want to use stranded; it takes the road vibration better and is less likely to fail. They don't stock it at the big box stores, but it's easy enough to order from there and it's about the same price. I get the kind already in conduit.
