Hmmm, this looks like it might be a bit random and sparse to make asking after a group buy very worthwhile? Think I might have to just order in a set for meself, hoping that I might have a car to stick them in again :?

Just testing the water, have been over to viper performance and spoken to them about making some top and bottom radiator silicone hoses the exact shape as the originals. Im waiting on a quote for about 20 kits as to see what price we can sell them at so just thought id test the water. Once we agree to the quote they will make us a prototype to test fit and once were happy they will start making them. All the hoses are hand formed and good quality, have used there hoses in the past with no issues. They werent interested in a percentage of the ownership of the mandrels which they form the hoses from so we will have them 100% and viper will not sell the kits through there product list only when we want them made. I think it will be about 5 weeks to finish them all after we are happy with the prototypes. Not looking for definates just testing the water to see if it will be worth while as im needing 2 sets anyway, cheers. 8-)

I'd certainly be interested to hear some basic pricing. Black would be my preference though.

I'd be up for a set if they can beat the racing beat price..... what colour do they come in... I prefer the blue but would take black if that's what everyone else wants.

Believe me, they can't fail to beat the Racing Beat price... ask me how I know :roll:

Plus, the last time I used RB they used UPS to deliver. Now they use Parcel Force, who sting you for their extra "we're charging you our extra-special charging you a fee for charging you a fee," fee :evil: Thieving ****s. Wish I knew about Adam and Dean's plan two weeks ago. Reckon I'm paying a good couple of score over the odds just for some nice Racing Beat logos on my hoses :cry:

On the plus side, I've got loads of Viper Performance hose and joiners on my FD and they're top quality, easily up there with brands like Samco or SFS who are a lot more expensive

This has got my attention. Depending of price of course! :lol: If we can choose our colours individually I'd go for black th:

I was just thinking the other day about emailing a few places to see if they would be interested in doing this. Guess I was beaten to it! Haha
