Does anyone know where i can get replacements for the Bakelite heat tubes that go through the body under the rear seat, it gets quite cold in the midwest.

Sometimes to move forward you must first fall backwards

When I got my Beetle those tubes were cracked as well. I repaired them with a glue called "Goop" and haven't had any problems since.

I believe that has replacement tubes for those that look different but do the same job.

I'm not sure what parts Wayne is referring to, but the ones that look like your picture are installed in the body before it's dropped onto the pan and cannot be put in once the body's in place without slicing a section off to clear the rear torsion housing. If they prove too difficult to locate you're probably just as well off spending your time fabricating something that will do the job.
