RV8 brake hoses
I would like to fit replacement stainless steel braided brake hoses to my RV8, but none seem to be readily available.However there is a Company,Hosetechnik Silicon who will manufacture some,but either need originals or a technical spec for the RV8 standard hoses and fittings.
Does anyone have this specification? If so,perhaps we could arrange for a batch to be made,I am willing to underwrite this and act as liason.

RV8 brake hoses

If they are not available readymade you could make up your own to whatever size you require using the Goodridge 600 series hoses and fittings. Or Merlin Motorsport will make them for you.

RV8 brake hoses
With thanks and respect to Geoff King, I asked for a specification,principally regarding the brake hose end fittings and length of the hose,in order to approach someone to either make or make&supply the hose set for an RV8.There are plenty of suppliers who can do this,once the details are known to me.
