Overall the guitar is missing the string clamp and the back control cavity and trem covers. I will try making the covers myself, but I've been unable to locate a replacement string clamp, so I though I'd try here.
Any help/suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Your options are locking tuners, a behind-the-nut Kahler stringlock available from Kahler or Wammi world etc. or have a locking nut installed. In the meantime, make sure that the contact points are lubed - nut & saddles - and that the strings are tied off on the machine head a la a capstan, i.e. string through the hole, first turn above the end poking through, and second & consecutive turns underneath.
Unless you're doing wild-arse dives and up bends, this should be enough to keep some semblance of tuning until you decide which way to jump.
