Any one know of a kit or something for the A/C compressor hoses in stainless?

I found one site with Aeroquip brand stuff for A/C:
http://www.rjays.com/Fittings_Hoses/aer-ac-fttgs-01.htm

But Im not sure as to what size hoses would be needed for the two lines or the connection ends?

Or how to make sure the orifice tube would still have a spot in the line to sit securely?

Anyone ever done this before?

You'd want -8 and -10 hose. I got mine from speedway motors. Look at docsblocks.com for compressor blocks. DO NOT order hose from docsblocks. There is a good size markup on their end.

Ok cool...and if ya dont mind me picking your brain a bit more...assuming that with your LQ4 (very nice! I might add) the hose routing is the same?

remember what lengths of hose did you used for each?
which part# for the compressor block adapter? (any other parts needed from there for the adapter to work?)
and finally for the other end of the hoses did you just cut the hardline and flare it to attach the stainless steel hose to that end? (reason I ask is because thats end with orifice tube in part of hardline and also the high and low side pressure ports)

I actually just bought 10ft lengths of each and just cut it to fit. Also, get some weld on fittings from docsblocks. You'll need to use those to adapt the hardline coming from the condensor. I'll look around and see if I can find the part numbers for what I ordered and get back to you. The compressor block would be different due to the AC compressor I'm using, but I'm sure you knew that :D

ACF1090 - Aeroquip -10 90degree fitting
ACF890 - Aeroquip -8 90degree fitting
ACF10S - Aeroquip -10 straight fitting
ACF8S - Aeroquip -8 straight fitting

I'm using a diff style compressor, so the compressor blocks I'm using are different than the ones the LTx crowd would use. I think these are the closest matches, although I'm not completely sure.
