I did but I used a donor harness from a 73 convertible for clips and undamaged connectors.

It might be impossible to find the clips any other way.

Basically I stripped all the black tape off, then repaired the wires and connectors removed the broken clips from the black plastic backbone that uses staples, and spliced in all the replacement clips.

Even the donor had busted clips. I was able to replace 97% of the clips between the donor and my original, then I rewrapped my harness in black tape and put all the paper labels from my original harness back on.

Isn't NPD selling the clips now? I thought I saw the ones for the main engine harness( lights to firewall) in the cataloge.

I think they ment the plastic "T" shaped clips that goes into the take of every harness, including the ones you can see in the engine bay. That clips has a pin in what it should be the shorter vertical stick of the "T" thats the only one visible when the tape is on and goes into the round holes (about 1/4" diam) and keeps the harness firm to the body....

If they ment another thing, then you´re right Tongue

Amk does not sell the clips that are part of the harness there are also 3 different styles that go in the harness the clips that on top of the Strut Rod cross member support are angled 90s for more clearance, the other clips are Ts, then there was a smaller diameter clip with a short nose that went around the battery tray area. all of the clips are stapled onto a plastic backer that runs the length of the wire harness and is locked together with the wires by using the black wire loom tape.

the wire harness was so much fun to repair, there are sections of the harness that are molded together with black rubberized plastic where a wire Tees off to an accessory. Of course when you need to make a splice repair you have to carefully carve out these rubberized plastic blocks that surround all the wires just to get at what you need.

i highly recommend working on a 2 foot section of the harness at a time and work your way from one end to the other only unwrapping and re wrapping as you go to prevent a spaghetti factory from occurring.
