Large size like 12 ga copper wire will work but needs to be solid copper & length is critical. On the length you just have to keep fooling with it to get the right length. Make up several lengths is probably easiest.
A dollar store should have metal prep. Well mine did anyway in gal plastic jug, sez concrete & metal prep.

I've found the Dollar Stores to be excellent sources for automotive chemicals. My local "Dollar General" had Marvel Mystery Oil at less than half the price of my "discount" at the parts store across the highway.
