Booster (servo) hose

    If anyone is interested I have found a maker of '2 stripe' booster hoses. He's in the UK and makes them for Lotus Cortinas etc but identical to Alpine ones. Sells them on Ebay. Makes them to order. No connection just happy to share and say that the product is excellent.

    Max length he can do is 34'' (860mm) which is long enough for my planned CDW location.

    Lovely & period correct indeed. That price tag however is hefty o_O

    Hi Bernd - they are hand made so I guess the price reflects that but it's not a 'must have' for most drivers. Still, nice to know there's someone that can make them.

    I expected that it would be the usual one...but this actaully has the fine texture... The same hose was on cooper S and Jag xke... But the xke suppliers only sell.short precut lengths..

    Good work

    Oliver, very true. We all love people taking initiative for reproducing period correct items. Just considering whether it would be worth it for me. Anyhow it's the originality cluster here so thanks for the hint...
