Does anyone know a source of the fiberboard flex hose under the dash of the Bavaria. Replacing my dash, and the old stuff just crumbled, thank you

After visiting with Carl Nelson, definitely no longer available, but hint to check VW
Mid America Motorworks part #321-691 fits perfectly, and only $7.99

I recall on many air cooled Porsche and VW sites that the foil reinforced hose (if you really want to refer to that foil as "reinforcing" material - it's still pretty fragile) :) Was used and is available in at least 2 or 3 diameters. Perhaps you can find a match up through Stoddard or elsewhere. Try companies like "McMaster-Carr" and "Aircraft Spruce and Specialty" also. You can spend HOURS cruising through those two sites looking at wondrous mechanical/linkage/hardware/cable/tubing things you never knew you needed! Both are pretty fascinating sources for ideas, if you're a nerd like me.

Hope this Helps!
