OK I'll ask where are You??

never heard of that place so no where near Me... 2337

early beetles are very easy to wire...

if before 1968..

Lights Ignition blinkers no relays unless You add them..

and I like them... on headlamps and starter motor...

LEE

Hi

There are some wiring diagrams on the samba http://www.thesamba.com 

I find the early wiring diagrams to be very hard to follow as all the wires run parallel in the diagram, have look at a later wiring diagram from say 72 or later Beetle.

You could easily have your car wired as a 72 or later Beetle if your staring with a blank canvas. I wired my 73 Beetle as a 76 Golf with 16 fuses, side parkers, intermitent wipers etc

For a stock engine you will only need power for the coil +, oil light wire and generator light wire.
