Just made some Correct Radiator hoses

I was really tired of the terrible reproductions - so I made my own.
What do you think?
I'm going to make 69 Small block, and 67 Big block for my personal cars.

Re: Just made some Correct Radiator hoses

here is the one on my 67 BB car.
I had seen a lot of different markings, from different GM vendors.
I chose a style most commonly found with the bigger letters.
They looked more authentic to me.

Whenever I had found original hoses - the markings were always so very messy.
That part was easy to duplicate - they are very hard to do neatly.

I still have to experiment with the ink...
And also what happens when armor-all is applied.

Re: Just made some Correct Radiator hoses

Nothing wrong with that!!

Now you need to put that radiator hose on e-bay for $5,000. Make sure it says original radiator hose from car previously owned by Joe Namath in 1969, then sold to "Mean" Joe Greene in 1979, then owned by Joe Montana in 1989, The owned by Marshall Faulk in 1999, and Peyton Manning in 2007. (Just kididng).

Hey it's cool. It's you car. I see nothing wrong with what you did!!
