    Body retainers

    Will these retainers work with the slash?

    Sure. They will work with just about any vehicle. All you need to do is ream a small hole in the body and shove the little rubber guy in that whole. Then, hook your pins in the ends. You'll be set in 5 minutes or less.
    Parts are cheap...glory lasts forever.

    You can do the same thing with fishing line. Just put two real small wholes between the two body post holes, thread the fishing line through them, tie the line to the body pins, and your done. Keeps your pins from getting lost, and its free as long as you have some fishing line laying around.

    Just purchase a whole box of clips for cheap and quit worring about loosing them.
    IMO you just have big potential "Snaggers" hanging on your body.
    I make tap adapters and power harnesses.

    This. 100 clips is like $5, about the same as a pair of clip retainers.

    I use them, they're really great. No more wondering where you put those body clips.
