    There isn't a hard line that I can see in there. There are no access holes cut, and even the hole for the E brake was blocked off before what appears to be an epoxy, possibly a thin coat of bed liner was applied. It looks pretty sharp and clean. I understand running the hard line through there is a royal PITA? Even with access holes.

    Worst case scenario I have to buy the kit that welds in where the access hole is cut that reinforces the tunnel. Then refinish the floor pan.
    I believe within the stack of paper that came with the car are receipts for the coating used.
    I have the same car as you, I believe they call it a "Classic".. Yes, i'm using the stock beetle fuel line in the tunnel, their were connections for it in there. You might have to do some light fabrication and make something work.. But, my brake line is routed on the inside of the car next to the tunnel, a common route. All the wiring is ran through the glassed in vacuum hose on the left side of the car.
    I'm pretty good at drinkin' beer...

    What goes down the hose on the other side? This car has them down both sides?
    The brake line, what of it that is there is run how you describe yours. There's a line lock in line around the shifter area.

    From there forward it needs everything but the master and brake switch.
    Hard lines out back need some love but I think are usable.

    Should there be some sort of cap or cover for the front of the tunnel?


    Looking deeper at the ass end, it needs bump stop mounts and snubbers.

    Anything with a big motor should have at least a 3/8 fuel line.

    Running a fuel line through the tunnel is easy peasy. You also need to check the Bowden tube at the rear to make sure it isn't broke.

    The plate is 5-6in wide and prolly 3-4in tall oval and has two 6 or 8MM bolts holding it on. 8 or 10mm hex

    Yep, otherwise with a fiberglass body and no cage, this area will crack like it is it's job.

    Wow, wild, no holes for bolts either. I wonder if your frame horn in the front has been replaced. The hole in front of all the bugs I worked on was way bigger that that.

    FYI, that hole needs to be closed up with a cover of some type....

    Yep, the "top" bolt and the "front" bolt of the three that hold the swing axle tube to the flat spring plate should go thru the snubber mount. Snubber should like up with the flat pad on the torsion housing at the top of your picture.
