What are these earthing kits for? What are you installing?

If it is the earthing strip from the bonnet to the guard to reduce radio interference, then they should do it for free. There is a bulletin about it and Mitsubishi did mine for free some time ago.

If it is just an earth strap to earth the bonnet then make it up from some co-ax cable. Strip the outer sheath off the cable and then take the centre conductor and insulation out from the braid. Cut the braid too length and solder a lug on either end. then mount it in a place where you can get some metallic connection to the bonnet and body.
