Make your own body-clip savers out of small-gauge wire and a couple of small solderless connectors. Crimp a connector on each end of a 3-inch length of wire. Using a screw and locknut or a rivet, attach one end to the body, about 1 or 2 inches away from the body hole, and slide the body clip on the other end. You could also attach two wires to one connector and mount it on the body between the body-post holes. This will make it easier to pull the body clips out, and it keeps them handy when it’s time to put them back.
