Sorry I haven't got a pic. Have been assured that it's the material style original.

Thanks
Most likely they will cancel the order in a couple days.. happened to me.

I found 2 OEM from usual suspects in UK.

Yeah, I was expecting it when I place the order. By "usual suspects," who do you mean? I don't often order stuff from other there. I'm rebuilding my motor, and my hose is all dry rotted and busted off on one end, so I'm going to need one fairly soon.

We got the prototype in, did a test fit, and made the necessary revisions. Should be finalized and order placed next week.

As Scott mentioned, we have a prototype that we're very satisfied with the fitment on, and ought to be seeing the final revision in the coming weeks. I'll be starting a thread in the Vendor's Loft, so look to it for updates and pricing as we iron out the final details.

I expect a prototype in the next week, so we'll do a test fit and make the necessary revisions, then move forward with production. I'll keep you guys updated as things progress. -Ash
Very nice.

We had one made in gloss black finish that was kind of thin and then a thicker one in an OEM type matte finish where the wrap layers are visible. We are debating which one to offer. Might just offer both. What are your thoughts?

I'll be into the shop later this afternoon and will snap one of the matte hose. I'm partial to the glossy finish, as it cleans up significantly easier. The matte has a porous texture that took on a dirty look after just handling it for a few minutes, and could be an eyesore for those of you who care to keep a clean engine bay.

Thicker, if it attracts less dirt that's good but not a deal beaker.

If the fit and function is like the original, that's good enough for me. I'm sure I'm not the only one who appreciates Ash going to all the effort to develop this part. Everybody enjoys their Rovers differently, but to me, they are working/playing trucks meant to get dirty so looks aren't that important to me. If it does clean up nicely, I think that would make everybody happy.

Here are a couple pics of our hose in matte. I went ahead and ordered some of both. I will make a thread in the vendors loft for them.

Lease of cleaning isn't an issue with Rivers.
They are meant to get dirty
