The tail light harness has a couple pinch clips taped on to retain it to the rear bumper side brackets inside the trunk for the side marker lights. Besides those and the four trunk gutter harness clips that is all there is.

Great photos of your trunk. I want to detail mine like yours.
Is the small clip on both sides of the trunk
Are there only two of the black clips or 4
And what is the colour you used for your splatter paint
