Before you commit to buy, I would get them to send you a picture of the complete set they sell and compare them careful with what you have, some did not look right on the picture i was sent. Was £320 for black with full roll edge stainless clips? it was matt black type with SS clips - but not sure ...

Pull the front crossmember out and you'll have a lot more room. 3 bolts each side (top, bottom and front, IIRC).

I guess silicon is the way forward? Unless you enjoy replacing hoses regularly, or standing by the side of the road watching coolant trickling away down the gutter, then I'd say silicone is definitely the way to go. Combine them with good quality stainless clips too, and as Steve says, it should be...

Manny's SS1 1600

Good day all

Good day all

I contacted "Classicsiliconhoses" and got a quote of around £280 with all the clips and P&P - GW have rubber only-- so i will wait on QRG and see what options they have.
I guess silicon is the way forward?

Manny's 81 GTC

many I think a quick ring round the usual suspects would be quicker as I have still got the problems I had last year. But what I would ask is are they Rubber and cloth wound, OR Kevlar reinforced?. As soon as I get my personal life sorted I will be looking to get quite a lot of parts remanufactured...

Manny's 81 GTC

Assume virtually none of the Capri set will fit. I will second that, the top and bottom radiator hoses definitely wont fit, AND if you have a 38 dgas the connector pipes probably won`t either.
