So in my line of work .. i use flexible all copper buss bars.. these are able to be shaped and hold there shape. You can press them tight against a floor board and the stay there.
Im thinking of using this for ground bonding under my surburban. Anyone useing these? What do ya think?

Dunno. I always thought braid would work best BUT in all my guitars, the electronics are shielded with flexible sticky back copper foil

for transmission of RF energy surface area is the key , as the rf travels over the conductor , rather than through it like current does
thus braid flattened out provides surface area quite similar to using copper foil / flashing

i think it would be fine maybe not for joints that will flex constantly like hinges because it will sooner or later break i guess this is where the braid would come in

what kind of auto u putting it on... and to note... some kind of grounding is better than no grounding :eagerness:

I was unable to get the straps for the surburan ..so my bonding is flat braid.. my amp grounding is round 2/0 we will see how it works soon..when the key is pressed!
