    ground strap

    Richard, I would consider a bonding strap to be "standard wiring". As long as one is made to match the original in terms of tinned copper braid with the correct dimensions, and it has properly installed terminals on each end, I see nothing wrong with one of local fabrication. In most cases Beech long ago halted OEM sales of "standard hardware" such as this, as no one would buy their vastly overpriced standard hardware items. Most field shops just fabricate their own, as a general rule. Just like hoses, ducts, etc.

    The mechanic said it's time to replace the ground strap from the motor
    to the aircraft frame, it's 50% broken at one end! Rapid does not have
    one. Does anyone know a salvage yard or some company that can make one
    that's approved for aviation. It is a typical tinned braided copper
    bonding strap with 3/8 hole at one end and 1/4 or 5/16 on the other, 22
    inches long. I found a lot of places that make em, but they are for
    custom cars, motorcycles, etc.
