What covers this?

Anyone know what covers the hole to the right of the linkage? Where to find it or just make it? Its in the smugglers box on a 1970 911 Targa Thanks......

I have always wondered what guys do for this. Its a direct entrance to the trunk area for mice or rats.

Insert housing accommodations for a gopher snake and/or cover the opening with a piece of plastic or metal, then seal. Snake is optional but most effective solution.

As far as I have been able to find there was a piece of foam in that hole from that factory. It disintegrates over time and has been long gone in most cars. I am trying to find some foam (
At Home Depot etc) to replace it.

Foam might provide minimal resistance to the rats I know. They’re known to chew through wire insulation. Those plastic (not styrofoam) take out containers seem like a likely border wall material in this application; flexible but not edible AFAIK. A spritz of bear or coyote urine wouldn’t hurt either.
