Place to get line plugs?

I removed my A/C and looking to buy little plugs that could be found on new parts that cover up the holes from dirt.

Any suggestions?

A local A/C shop should have hundreds - would probably give them to you - especially if they thought you would be bringing your car in later to have the system evacuated and charged.
Or just wrap them with tape.

One option is to put several layers of plastic (plastic bag or plastic wrap) over the fitting, and then wrap duct tape around it tightly. Put the tape only on the plastic and the hose, but not on the hose fitting, so you won't have adhesive to clean off the fitting later. It may not be a truly airtight seal, but it will keep the dirt out for now.

Where do they get them ? I'm aware of the tape but I have an OCD that will not slide.

The A/C shop gets them off the new hoses they install.
