I received the missing hose a couple of months ago. So I'm very happy with Stu's service.

With regard to hose 6 I had no trouble fitting this to the engine so I cannot see why this was the case.
Do you have a mk1 or a mk2?

Hi Chris,
It was hose 6. The top end was a tad narrow. Had to widen it by turning a wrench inside and then it fitted but it needed real force to make it slide over the metal.

Ah, so that's the problem! I have connected the 2 x 90 degrees hose to the heater and found it it fitted only just. So now I still have an unreplaced hose somewhere. Hope that Stu will be able to correct this. Maybe the systems for MK1's and 2's differ, 'cause I also had some problems installing tha...

I used a red adhesive tape for my front bumper till I find something better. From a distance it's hard to tell the difference. Just don't come too close. :D

That's right. The red kit has gone, but maybe black and blue are still available. Plus the good news is that a company over here in Holland is eager to make a complete new set. I promised the guy that he can get my old set after installing the new one, so he can send them to the silicone plant to ma...

Didn't need any bank details. They accept Paypal which is the easiest way to transfer money internationally. This was the last red kit, but maybe they have a blue or black one still in stock.

Just ordered the last red kit. Think it will look great on the car and no tearing coolant hoses anymore in the first decade or so.

That's somewhat peculiar. Your steering wheel is on the right side of the car if you drive on the wrong side of the road. Where's the logic? :lol:

Nope, that isn't war, that's semantics as I have explained numerous times to my highly regarded British friends. What's the opposite of right? Wrong! So if we drive at the right side of the road, you.... :lol:

Yes indeed, she could be the Grey Lady's sister, even though she's missing the fog lights and has the steering wheel at the wrong side of the car. :)
