Clips are more hassle than they are worth m8.
You will never beat a hardwired soultion (Except flashing firmware).

Kynar or Enamel coated wire you choose.

Your Drive Chip is most likely GC2-D2C.

Your Drive Pins are most likely not cut.

ok so its a d2c
providing it not the newer d2c2
then Id go for the Argon chip made by Infectus.
solid and reprogrammable

http://www.infectus.biz/argon.php

ARGON-SPI INTRODUCTION:
ARGON is a chip the introduce the programming concept called "MULTIFUNCTIONAL JTAG". ARGON is consisting of a last generation ACTEL chip that can be re-programmed with different firmwares, last version has a SPI 2Mbit flash on board for new few wires firmwares. The JTAG update suffers the fact that it needs an external programmer to be implemented, but it gives to the developers the possibility to COMPLETELY CHANGE THE CHIP CODE, SOMETHING UNTHINKABLE FOR OTHER PROJECTS.
Currently ARGON is being used by Wii D2C systems successfully, it has a UNIQUE firmware in the world made up by 13 threads.
We’re shortly releasing a new firmware for PS2 that will work on ARGON., making just a simple programming operation ARGON chip will be ok for PS2 consoles. This is an example of how great is the possibility to change the chip’s logic code!!
REMEMBER, the JTAG programming works also if the chip is NOT INTALLED, which is great for resellers to have up-to-date stocks because they are able to program the stoks by their own.

CURRENT FIRMWARE AVAILABLE:
- ARGON SPI WASABUS 1.0 FIRMWARE - 9 wires / code injection (released 06/05/08)
To update argon pls. download last version of PROGRAMMER SUITE > HERE

thanks where would it allow me to buy the things i need from also how often would it need to be updated as the way i see to update it would be to open the wii up each time it needed to be updated and connect it to the jtag thing

When the mod is fitted the installer would run the programming cable out through the the gamecube memory card port and located under the flap.
When it comes to programming just lift flap and insert the end of the lead into the injectus hooked up to a usb2 and pc and flash.
Could be flashed once a month if needed or once every six months upto you.
