Jeff

Just wondering if you have tested washing them and how well the ink holds up?

Thanks for asking - Yes.
I have done everything I could think of.
I wanted to be sure not to have any angry people. LOL

Got them hot over and over, then - dish soap - oil, PS fluid, Brake fluid, car wash soap- armorall - silicone - wet rags - wd40.

I twisted them - froze them - soaked them in the bath tub...
threw them in the pool- baried them in the sand -- left them in the sun.

Rubbed real hard with a towel - no changes
They were perfect -
They stood up to anything that my original hoses did.

Careful though-- lacquer thinner takes the markings right off,
just like it did to my originals so no thinner.
And no steel wool or scotch pads -that reduced the logo.

Also I don't use a white ink - I thought it looked too new and obvious - did not like that on my cars.
I make them "yellowed"so it looks just like the real ones I have.

I did a TON of research before making any.
I collected examples of lots of original hoses before I started.

There were so many different versions of the logos and fonts, and sizes.
I chose this style simply... because I liked it the best
It looked vintage.
Some of the NCRS data was a big help.

No -- actually I am doing this all myself.
Got tired of waiting.  ???

Secured all the licenses, then made the hoses.
I have $1000's invested in product & licenses, 100's of hours in research.
It was not an easy thing to do - but I really hated the repro hoses.
I just did not want to wait anymore. 8)
