Smile Battery retaining strap & Plastic clips

Hi, Thanks again for the recent advice to my first posting. I have fitted a new battery as my charger indicated that the low voltage causing dodgy sensor readings was due to internal shorting. My 12 volt battery had been converted to a 6 volt battery. When fitting the replacement battery I noticed that the retaining strap had been cut short and am therefore looking for a replacement as I think that the excessive movement of the battery contributed to the internal shorting.
Also I have checked the plenum tubes using the guidance tips from Derek and the forum and noticed that 4 of the 7 plastic clips that run along the lower edge of the windscreen surround are missing. Does anyone know of a supplier who would stock such clips?

You could ask all the sellers breaking 75/ZTs on ebay if they have any scuttle clips?
