A/C under dash vent hose. Need help.
« on: November 22, 2022, 12:38:56 PM »
 Hi guys. Need some help with identifying an original A/C under dash vent hose for my KR. 
 There are some on e-bay, but I'm not sure exactly what to look for. The reproductions look cheap and I would like to locate an original.
 Some have a metal strip visible in the ribs and some don't. They also have, for lack of a better term, a 'leathery' look to them. I just don't want to get burned by someone passing off a weathered reproduction as an original.
 Does someone have a picture perhaps of an original with the correct ends and length.
 Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.
             P.S. I did try the search, but didn't have  much luck.

                                     Thanks, Pete.

Hi Pete. The repos aren't close, hold out for original. AC ones are also different from non AC. Best way to describe original is its more fabric than asphalt paper and the wire spiral is more of a flat band than a wire
