Suggestions?
    NEC requires bonding and grounding conductors # 8 to be in conduit to protect it from injury. Anything larger it is not needed.

    If t5he gate is coated with a nonconductive material I don't think I would bother to bond it.
    They say I shot a man named Gray and took his wife to Italy
    She inherited a million bucks and when she died it came to me
    I can't help it if I'm lucky
