<< Now I
 just have a hole on the passenger side-and a short rusty tube on the driver
 I was thinking of maybe getting some copper tube that I could somehow secure
 on either side of the fire wall and then connect a tube to that.
 not much room to work in there...I'll try to take some pics when i figure out
 a solution to show you all.
 any suggestions appreciated...

You might try using an EMT (conduit) connector, and trim off one end (turning 
it into a bulk head connector). The trick might be coming up with a size that 
will fit outside the tube, otherwise you'll always had a trace of water in 
the end of the hose. You could also add a piece of tin in here, and seal it to 
the body with silicone and rivits once you've gotten the pieces worked out. I 
know on my 69 Square I had a similar problem, but my tubes were gone, but the 
body was still good, and I had to improvise a connector for the hose. I ended 
up welding in some new tubes, after searching all over for the size that would 
work. I hope this helps.
