Looking for a source for an anti-static grounding strap that attaches to the vehicle frame and touches the ground when the vehicle is stopped, and "blows" away when the vehicle is in motion.
Thanks, Jim Finley

It grounds the static elictricity so you don't shock the crap out of yourself when you exit the car. Try the J.C.Whitney catalog...

Well , thats half the fun !!
Nothing like a fresh surprise after sliding across the seat
The thing I work on (at work) has 4 chains hanging from it on each corner to drop the static charge . Find a grounding strap , the braided style and cut one connector end off and bolt the other end to the chassis somewhere . Find a electrician and they may have a old one they will donate .

I hate that when the static has built up so much, when you ground your self, there is an audible snap ! Hell some times I can see the Discharge if it's dark enough. I swear It would lite a bulb !
