Default radiator wire clips

The two clips that hold the wire that crosses along the lower rear of the radiator. What are they called and where can I get them? Thank you

I believe they are soldered on to the bottom of the radiator, not something that is an add on.

If you want functional, as opposed to for show, black nylon wire ties pushed through the radiator fins and not pulled super tight, so as to not bend the radiator fins works pretty good. Have the nub on the wire tie on the inside.

I have seen people make some pretty original-looking replacements using Spark Plug Connectors:
