grey stick-on wire clips

You know those grey self-stick wire clip thingies that they used in the 70's to hold wires (and other stuff) against the inner skins? after 45 years, some have gotten brittle and broken; I need some solution for replacement on some, and for running new wires. (skins out--walls bare--full monty).
I haven't been able to find anything similar to these on various searches...wondering if anyone has a source, or a recommendation for some other wire-retention solution (that doesn't require poking a hole into whatever its attached to).

The only thing I can find that looks similar (in function) is these square stick-on things at Lowes...they have a raised center with slots that accept a wire tie.

I got some of these. They work fine against the inner skin or on a layer of thin prodex insulation:

And these:

There are other options as well.

Chuck:

VTS has them for sale:

You can also go to amazon and do a search for cable clips. I purchased some from them. However, I ran out and then used foil tape for some areas - in the middle 2 inches or so of the foil tape, i put the tape backing over the sticky side of the tape so the wire is still allowed to slide and move.
