If you have the connectors, you can go to an auto supply store and buy a
ground strap. They typically go between the engine and the frame/chassis,
or hood and chassis. You can probably use one end of it as it already is,
and simply cut it to length, and add an old connector to the other end by
obviously removing it from the old braid, and soldering it to the new braid.
Or, if you can find a place that rebuilds starters, they'll have this part
easily, and perhaps they'll even sell it to you ;-)
