What do you guys use/ find as best for the fresh air hose for heat? ( from shroud to rear tin).
'Til the season and trying to get the cars warm. I find those foil 2 inch hoses for really durable. Anyone use something with a bit more longevity?

How about rubber ones. They are made by EMPI so they must be good.

Raj, reach out to Vanessa. She has a ton of Thing parts stashed away in the basement of the old house that Dave had amassed that she is trying to get rid of. I know there was quite a bit of good stuff.
