That would have been a good idea! I'm not sure it would have worked, only because it was a perfect fit to the fittings that the tape would have made it too big.MTB your rocket pack is looking great! I realize you've already cut all your braided hoses but for anyone else who's going to do it. If you wrap some tape around the hose where your cut is going to be and then cut through the tape and hose with a cut off wheel it works pretty well.
But I can try it if I do the ready of them!
