66 A/C hoses

Thoughts on best source for A/C hoses for 66 ElCamino?

these are the clamped, not crimped style.

Ron is running out of mechanical things to do on White Elcamino.

Some of you are really "clued" in on a/c stuff.

Would like to save my parts guy some time trying to chase something down.

Thanks in advance,

I  got my hoses from a AC shop in AZ that also has the correct muffler for my car.  The owner said the biggest issue was tearing that special inside liner  when slipping the hose over the fittings.  He had me polish the fitting to remove anything that might damage that special liner.  Then used mineral oil and heat on the hose.  No leaks to date


Bob filled my system with R12.
