    Gauging Interest Full silicon radiator Hose Kits for the Mk1

    Hi guys i was talking to a hosing supplier who makes hose kits for alot of different car companies inc a 4AGE AE86 set up after seeing a Kit they made on a friends AE86 and its Very good quality.

    I gave them a ring asking would they be interested in making a silicon hose set (in a range of colours) for the Mk1 and they would be

    Im gathering a full set of rad hoses tomorrow to send to them and that have said they will do a special price for the club once they have the Jigs set up which they said normally takes about a month to get right/fully test.

    So Not sure on price but we are talking about £50-60+postage for similar kits with the same number of hoses. we can probably get the postage down by sending them to a few people who then distribute to local members.

    What do you think

    Depending on quality, price, colour and which hoses will be in the kit, count me in

    vaccuum hosing in any colour is v easy to find and would match most samco type stuff without getting it from them.

    Had a nice phone call with a chap in Japan today and they will happily make up the full kit we discussed their manufacturing and testing process and im happy that they could make replacment parts for some of the aircraft i work on.

    Only thing is they can only do either Yellow or Blue for the kit.
