Ya with paint on all the colored wires, disguising them, and the age of the connections, It would be easier to run a fresh harness. I got a complete harness from JBugs for my 61 and it went right in, everything color coded correctly and proper lengths.

This really does look to be in very good condition. A nice dry bug. Wow I am jealous of the car stock you all have in the south. Again congratulations now that it's cleaned for a closer look.

Adjustable front beam in there. Are you going to drop it? My early bug is left tall but everyone around here in Ohio gets their bug low as a matter of course.

Looks pretty good.
Get after that bare metal with some Ospho (phosphoric acid) and convert that rust to iron oxide. Then prime and paint it when you have the rest of the chassis cleaned up.

Good Luck.

If the harness is in good condition and the paint can be removed then use it but going off the progress and your mechanical aptitude it may be more time efficient/cost effective to pull a new harness through
