How are you guys passing your hoses from the trunk to the passenger compartment?  My NA seemed to have a bazillion holes to run them through, but the NB seems much more limited and none are large enough to accommodate the hoses.

I can fit two fingers through there, hardly enough room for the hoses.  Trim the panel?

I just put mine through the same, I think it only squeezes the foam insulation and not the hose so you should be good :toast:

From the trunk, spiralled around the fuel line to the engine bay, through the firewall to the driver.

Any reason not to have it come out from the passenger side?  There's a battery cut-off switch in that area - should that be avoided?  The routing is slightly better than through the driver's side.

I have used through the hull fittings. You can get them from Grainger or McMaster Car.

You drill holes to fit and you then have quick connect fittings to ease maintenance.
