I'm trying to sort out heater hoses and looking for something like these:

They're $5 each from summit but I want avoid freight rapeage so prefer to by local if I can. Any ideas where/who stocks these in Aus?

 

Failing this I would settle for some 90 degree bends in light gauge pipe but would need to be tight bends with beads rolled for security? Any suggestions?

 

Thanks.

 

David

Sorry David. Don't know what I was thinking.

 

I knew I'd used those but now realise it was on my windscreen washer plumbing.

 

I bought brass fittings from EnZed for the heater hoses.

I just missed out on a Bolwell Mk 7 project last week, so I was nearly back to square one!

If black is critical, they're probably expensive but what about anodised fuel fittings.
Otherwise brass fittings from a plumbing store. (Probably won't suit your build though, unless hidden)
