RE: need source for cloth vac. hose, group aquisition
I too buy the Euro-style 'cloth' hose at a local auto parts supply store (Robbins). I should think that if you look around you could find it.
Just a note - some of the original factory hoses (A/C?) on my 85 ur-q say 'Made In USA'.

As I have reported on the list before, I have been able to find this
"european" vacuum line at a local auto parts store. This is one of the
non-chains, but I think they belong to the "Pro-Plus" group. The stuff I
bought even had the VW/Audi logo embossed in it!
