Electric fuel pump install on a carburetor car

I have decided to install a low pressure electric fuel pump on my Type3, for a number of reasons (vapor lock, the ability to prime my carbs after sitting for a long period, a cleaner look of the engine bay, the fact that you cannot find locally mechanical pumps, only electric ones and so on.).

Does anybody have pictures of an aftermarket electric pump installation? I am looking for ideeas of how to mount it below the fuel tank in a way that is both safe and does not require drilling any part of the car's body.

Thanks in advance.

No drilling? That makes it a bit tougher.

One thing that comes to mind is large hose clamps. You can run one around the pump and around something like the steering rack or a stout brace of some kind. I strongly suggest rubber insulation between the pump and the clamp and between the pump and any part of the car's body. This helps cut down on noise transfer (the inexpensive Facet pumps are known as "clackers" for the noise they make; even good rotary pumps will hum) and helps keep the pump from moving against the body or clamp, fretting and potentially causing damage.
