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.
