Where can I buy Hardline for Vintage Air?

Does anyone know who can make a hardline for my Vintage Air heater hose line? Basically I need the same bents in the hardline, but need it 4in longer where the yellow caps are?

Thanks,
Tony

Tony, Did you ask Vintage Air if they could make them?

Also, where are you located? If you are near San Francisco, Ca, there is a business named the Source Tube & Hose in Contra Costa County . Joe the owner/tech makes hoses and lines for hydraulic and A/C. He fabricated the hoses for my 68 Camaro with Classic Auto Air. The lines run between the fender and above the wheel house sheetmetal ...more out of sight. Joe is making a high pressure ps hose for a kit car I'm restoring. I gave him photos and a drawing, and the old hose to go by even though the metal tube part is being extended 5" and the bends will be different. His ph # 925-682-5200.

You could take those aluminum pieces off and make your own using braided line and A.N. fittings for a/c. If I remember correctly, I still have those pieces in a box and didnt use them. I ran my braided line right to the brass fittings.

Just as another idea, I used short heater barbs and ran the regular hose thru the blower hole, but in a DSE block off plate first.
