I was thinking the clips were the same for both the civilian 3B's and military M606's

After seeing Luis's question about the holes, I went thru my collection of pics, and all the original looking fenders had the holes, empty, including my DJ, except for one DJ, which had an original looking installation of a three terminal relay in the top hole.  I couldn't follow the wires completely, but they seemed to be going to the front left corner, like for either the horn or lights.  The wires were colored red, brown, white, from back towards front of Jeep on relay.  The brown looked heavier gauge like maybe a "power source".  I've tried to attach 2 pic, my first attempt at that, so I hope they come thru.

What are the holes indicated in red for? My fender has the same!

I have no idea.  That's a picture of Wade's '55.  I went out to the garage and noticed mine has those holes too.  Look under the fender ( on the wheel side) you will notice those holes line up on an overlapped seam.  Follow that seam down to the bottom of the fender and you may find another hole.  Is it possible that these holes were used to help keep the fender together when assembling them? 

I tried to fill in holes that don' t look original but I still have a few that I have no idea what they're for.

Hi Rus
Your photos suggested a question.

Notice the number stamped on the clips.  One says, "20".  When I cleaned all the clips off that salvage tub, I noted these sizes: 34, 28, 20 and C.  34 being that one big one on the firewall and C being the smallest one where there's only one wire to clip.  I didn't have a guide to tell me where to put which.  I just "eye balled" where to put them by test * the harness to see if the wire (including loom-if present) would fit inside first before pushing into the body hole.  What I did notice is there at the firewall the larger ones held the larger harness and the sizes went down as you fanned out away from that corner.  Here are some additional images of Wade's '55 that show the clips along the Driver's side:

 Note: The Firewall image may need to have a clip on the Toe Board Gusset where the red circle is also (I posted an example of a 3B I saw on my build thread on the old 3B Forum that had this - but it is down right now.  If it comes back, I will also add a link here.)

The flat clips you have at the bottom of your image are to hold the harness inside the "C" channel of the frame as it runs back to the rear.

Part 2

Way back when I started researching, most of these parts I couldn't find.  So remember to check back often as parts are added all the time.

Way back, I was doing a lot of research on how to identify and then who to order from when things changed.  I visited a salvage yard - I found a list on Grover's website:

I got real lucky one trip down to OK (still living in KS at the time) and noticed more parts than I'd originally planned on looking for.

What I pulled off a 3B body at a salvage yard were 4 different sizes plus one double clip that held the harness and vacuum wiper hose on the drivers fender.

Wade's '55:

A company called Restoration Specialties offers a wide variety of parts.  They have many of these clips too.
-multiple pages

As I mentioned at the start, I believe some parts are "borrowed" from other manufacturers and I also see these clips offered by others:

That one double clip is tough.  Both Chevy and Ford offer double clips.  Restoration Specialties offer a double clip too but all are for a 3/8" and a 1/4" size as their largest.  These clips are also asymmetrical (not the same on both sides).  One could probably be altered or fabricated.

Shop around for the best price/shipping.

I hope this helps.
