Bump strip clips

Having never removed the bump strips before I'm presuming the clips will break and will need new ones to re-fit strips after painting.
Are these still available anywhere?

If you remove the front bumper the bump strips are held on with metal clips. They can be removed with a screwdriver and pliers and usually they can be re-used. They are near impossible to remove while the bumper is still on the car as you risk kinking the bump strip. I re-used the clips that were good when I removed and re-fitted mine and replaced the others with new ones from Vauxhall. I will post the part number when I find it they're only a few pence each.

Or you can use small hose clamps, to keep them secured...
