Custom Hose

Does anyone know how you can attach a mandrel bent tube to rubber ends as shown in the photo? I have the ability to bend the tubing but not clear on how this can be done. Doesn't look like they use the shrink to fits so just curious. This is one of DSE's builds:

Re: Custom Hose

They use a roller similar to this to roll a bead in the end. There are lower cost versions out there.

Not sure how they get away with no clamps.

Re: Custom Hose

They may be using the Gates Powergrip hose clamps. I use them on all of my builds.

That's what I was referring to with my term "shrink to fits". I am assuming this as well but from the photo it sure doesn't look like it but was mostly just curious. I don't think I will go to the trouble but when I was looking closely at the example I couldn't figure out what they were doing. Maybe connecting it with gates then sliding other hose over the ends for the appearance?

Re: Custom Hose

Maybe the car had not yet been started in this pic? Car was not finished at this time would be my guess...
