I don't really have any pictures, but I plumbed my system with AN fittings from the tank to the carbs. It basically goes something like this:

AN Bung on tank
90* fitting on bung
hose towards driver's side
180* fitting on hose
Earls 65 micron filter
straight fitting on hose
hose over the tunnel
straight fitting on hose
Holley Red pump
coupler fitting
Petrol King regulator
45* fitting
hose through heater channel (punched a hole in the passenger fender well (it was rust rotted) and a corresponding hole in heater tube) I run J-pipes so I don't use the heater channel
straight fitting
bulkhead fitting on forward firewall (in front of 1/2 side head)
45* fitting
hose to gauge junction box with fuel pressure gauge
hose to t-fitting
hoses from there to carbs..

writing that out, it looks a lot more complicated than it actually is..

Here is a nice little bracket that holds the fuel filter on the transmission. https://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifi...php?id=1901747
