How we would go about achieving this? Any help would be appreciated.

try this (added :p):

You can try dropping " to get

nnoremap yf :!echo %c:p:gs!\!/! %i | clip<cr>

but I'm not sure how well it would work with paths containing spaces. Those quotation marks are there to do the escaping, but echo doesn't handle its arguments properly.
