 My 90's repops continually split and fail constantly and I have to chase the longitudinal crack all the time.

Jones, if you could measure the width of the stripes that would help. Obviously the aftermarket is garbage but I've given the hoses a few coats of Mequiars rubber hose liquid love. They look nice.

Those hoses look great. Very creative idea with tire pen. Never even heard of a tire pen. I guess I am damn lucky that my RS Z still has the factory hoses.

If you could measure the width of the stripes and upload some pictures,  I'd appreciate it.

I found a pile of OLD hoses from My Pace car, Red, Green, Yellow, The Orange is still in the car.
I took a few photos; off the top of my head.
Red & Green = 0.125"
Yellow = 0.250"

Thank you!!! 1/4Ē is fat. Iím pretty sure the orange is the same width as the green and red that go to the actuators, but wasnít sure if the red and green fatter hoses on the relay valve had a wider stripe than the orange and smaller than the yellow. If you can verify those, Iíd appreciate it.

Sixt9 and Jonesy, Iím waiting on you 2 yutes for some pictures and measurements.

There are what appears to be significant differences in hose colors and the zippered/non zippered pattern on the yellow striped hose.  I made a trip back to the local art store and the manager and I spent about an hour looking and attempting to match colors from the posted pictures of what they most likely resembled before fade/time/weathering dulled them out. Below is what we came up with. Itís just a mock-up but I think itís darn close. Plus the width is correct. I guess in 11 days Iíll know.

I'm gonna guess that is a result of either a warn paint head felt or it could just be that the peak of the hose while being applied has a wash-out (yes I just made that up) causing the applicator to dry (not stay as lubricated) in the middle due to contact with the surface of the hose and that's what you are seeing as a 'zipper' effect..

Did a mock-up to see how it looks and Iím pretty happy with it. Thanks again to those who helped out!! Especially those with pictures and measurements. Iíll also post some when itís all reassembled.
Iíve done 5 sets so faró2 for others who are following this thread, the set I put on my car in 1994 which was still in excellent shape, and 2 extra due the guy who had 1 job to doÖ.not doing it.
After several trial runs, DOHS!, spending more quality time with the manager of the local art store, changing to a different paint brand, chasing down my neighbor due to the stencil striping being delivered to him instead of me and more, I can do it in my sleep.
