Lately I've been rally swaying to goin wioth just old fashion classic rubber instead of the glitzy alternaitves. Since I already bought the stainless hoses for the radiator and heater I decided to install them anyhow - Next car will more than like be all classic rubber.
The stainless was fairly eas, just shape and cut to length. The hose clamps and covers can be tediaous on lining everything up and making sure your on the flanges. More time involved than I wanted but turned out snazzy.
