    Default Samco GXP silicone radiator hoses now avaliable

    I posted this on the engine section but for us GXP owners no one makes the shorter GXP upper radiator hose anymore. If you order it will default to the longer GT hose. I worked with a friend and sent GXP hoses to Samco they just sent back proto types for me to test and are now available. So now there is a source for silicone GXP radiator hoses. For now Jeff will be the sole distributor of these hoses and his website is siliconehosekits.net



    Thanks Tom

    Do they look like they are good quality, and do they look like they will fit alright?
