Brake hose issue

Recommended Posts

Am working on my t - sport as got another run around for now. 

Need some advice on how to clamp my brake hoses so I can take the calipers off, as I have a full re-haul kit and want them powder coated. Also got a set of HEL braided hoses ready to go on.

Jacked her up today and had a look, but the hoses feel solid. Was gonna get some clamps from toolstation but just don't think they would be strong enough to pinch them and stop fluid coming out.

Any advice on what clamp kit to buy (will need a set of four), or even a kit of stops/bungs.

Use a pair of vice grips and lock them tight enough to hold back the fluid but not too tight as it could damage the hose.

Have used these for many years, about £3

If you have the calipers off and properly clean, Hammerite gloss seems to stay on ok and looks good, or one of the heat proof engine paints, more diy than powder coating.
