Orange stripe on RS vacuum hose
« on: June 12, 2023, 08:38:41 PM »
30 years later and nobody makes the orange striped hose from the headlight switch to the relay. Inline Tube sells color striped hoses, but not orange. I called tech support…”yes we stripe the hoses, no we won’t  make an orange one.”
As I understand, the Legends cars now require the orange stripe. 🧐🧐🤔🤔🤔

I used a tire ink pen off amazon…turned out good and passed judging at Bloomington Gold.   Tire Ink Paint Pen for Car Tires Permanent and Waterproof Carwash Safe (1 Pen, Orange) https://a.co/d/2yD5bSn

If you zoom in on the pic you can see it.

Used a different pinstripe stencil kit that left no bleeding under, spray painted 3of them with artistic pro paint, and I can live with it. I can’t live with aqua, pink, and pale yellow stripes. Stay tuned.

Are those the correct widths on the stripes?  Looks good.

Cook….thanks…..the width is 1/16th but my original hoses are long gone. I replicated the width from my 1993 reproduction set that’s still on the car. The paint is so good from that set I couldn’t get it off the hose, I just prepped and painted over the red stripe that goes to the headlight switch. The new kit paint rubbed off with my thumb.

Indy-Thank you for he pictures! I vaguely remember seeing the zippered yellow hose at some point forever ago, and am pretty sure replicating that is damn near impossible. It looks to be 1/8” but can’t really tell. At this point I’ve got the process down to a science, and am going to bring some with me to Morgantown for comparison hope to to fine tune the colors and get the correct width. That other hose that’s next to the red hose looks yellow, but should be green. If you could get some better pictures next time I would appreciate it. I also found a thread from last year that you posted some pictures in, and the yellow looks approximately 1/8” wide, so I’ll redo them. The white striped I believe is a a vacuum hose from the intake.

Paint looks good. I saved my original hoses. I will have to dig them out and see what the striping looks like. I have a VanNuys car 11B.

The 90's repop hoses were not high quality rubber. They would split at every connector. I still have them on my car. Not sure how the new hose kits are
