Here's the situation.
I would like to brighten up my engine bay a little bit more.
Hoses are a reasonably cheap option, and simple enough for a mechanical numpty like me to do myself with no £45-£60 per hour labour bills to face.
The choices are:-
Braided - look brilliant, but more than I wanted to spend really.
Overbraiding - heard too many stories of them going green in about six months and / or rotting the rubber underneath.
Coloured Silicone - great. Look good, quite cheap & easy to source. But then the colour is the problem.
Black - same as I've got
Yellow, Blue or Purple - do not really go with my wine red car.
Red - you might think would go, but the only ones I've seen are a bright, almost Ferrari red, and the wine red is more of a burgundy, and I don't see them matching too well at all.

So, anybody any ideas please from all your combined years of experience in working with GTRs.

Thank you for your time.

P1ss off and mak.........oh wait, braided is the way to go mate. Nothing looks as good. That's what I want to do.

skykit....
Is that a serious suggestion ?
It's not easy to tell from just the words and it's not a combination I had considered.

Andrew (smithers),
Thanks for the offer, but that red is just a bit too bright for my car.
