Does anyone know of any slicone hose kits that are already made??

I just know of a company here in the UK that just needs 10 orders and some pipework to get it rolling...thought there might be some interest but didn't want to put a GB thing up just incase there is already a kit out there and i couldn't find it...

cheers

I believe a company called hose techniques makes a kit, granted they are in the US and I thought you were overseas...

I am overseas... :(

sorry, didn't mean a GB on here...i meant for my nissan forum in the UK...but if there is already a decent priced one kicking about then it wouldn't be worth sorting another manufacturer out...

cheers

still no sign of a gasket though wes... :mad:

*edit* sorry i don't know who justin is on here...is it his screen name or is that different??

also, mike young (myoung) has a kit as well. please click here to see mikes car
Cheers for that...so they haven't got a coolant hose kit out then...just a dress up kit for vaccuum hoses and pipes etc...??

Will have to look into this company a little bit more than and see what can be done!

Samco makes a kit for the SR20 and the lower hose is the same shape with a slightly different hose diameter, although it can easily me made to work, it's the upper hose they don't have...
But whats the point in botching something to fit when i have the oppurtunity to get something bespoke made up and will fit perfectly...

Yep...i spoke to samco and they're just a pain in the Butt...they want so many orders...something like 30 and then a deposit and then the first orders will cost extra for tooling costs and then they just turn around and say...err no..:(

soooooo i'll have a word with this other company see what they can do...maybe you lot in the states would be interested as well...who knows... :rolleyes: 10 people i don't think would be hard to find in the UK but if theres a bigger market then great! Don't think shipping costs would be that extortionate to the states or from the states to the UK either...

Samco is also located in the UK.. Looks like you already knew that..

Try Hose Techniques

and remember to tell them where you heard it.. ;)
Cheers mike i'll certainly enquire about the hose dress up kits but i'm looking at getting radiator hoses etc all done up in silicone so it's a case of getting them manufactured from scratch. They're a rather helpful company as well, i'm just trying to source some second hand piping for free at the moment... :rolleyes:

oh and samco are just a bunch of idiots when it comes to trying to get something made up for a car not on there list and possibly not the most popular about. They just tend to ignore you or mess you about so i've given up with them...
