This used original, color coded set of vacuum hoses is 100% complete and relatively pliable. It comes complete with decades of dirt and grime (patina) for no extra charge. If you want to remove the grime it will take some serious elbow grease but it can be done. The color coded stripes are quite resilient to cleaning as the ink used actually embedded itself into the rubber. Kit includes used check valve and fittings shown, but does not include headlight switch.
"I found a good way to remove 50 years of crud. Soak the lines in hot water and dawn dish soap for a bit then take a small stiff brush. Put fast orange hand cleaner WITH pumice on the brush. Lay the lines on the bench or your driveway and scrub. They will look like new and it will not remove the paint lines" - Kim Friesen, customer.
*NOTE* We include an original schematic on how this hose kit was routed with every set sold.
