My pcv hoses on my old (low mileage) A12's were always smooth plain rubber hoses without markings.

4  A12 Forum / A12 - Restoration Forum / PCV hose markings

With Carlisle around the corner I want my parts list to be as accurate as possible.  I looked back at the Butter Bee and the 5600 mile Bee and the PCV hose doesn't seem to have noticeable markings on them.  I've seen on nicely restored vehicles where the PCV hose has a yellowish "Gates 070168..........." stamping or something like that on the hose.  
 
My question is do I search for hose with the markings or should save myself a few bucks and leave the plain hose that's already there?  Just trying to make it as correct as I can.  Thank you.

The Mecum Group does an outstanding job in putting on the production in my opinion.  I attended the event in Kissimmee, FL in January basically to attempt to purchase something from the parts that were being auctioned off at this event.  This was a first for them as well and they did a very good job of presenting the pieces, grouping things together for the auction and actually putting the items up for bid.  Fortunately, I was able to pickup several of the "lots" and the process from bidding, to paying for the items, to loading the pieces went off very smoothly.  It amazed me when you go  to pay and you enter into this office area that really wants the experience to be an enjoyable one.  Everyone was very helpful and would either get you an answer or put you into contact with someone to answer the question.
The Kissimmee collection that was offered in January was an unreal collection from approximately six or so of the most premiere muscle car collections.  Then you add in another 2000 plus cars and it was an ultimate collection of cars to view.  I have no ideal on what they can do to top this event for 2018.
I would strongly suggest any fan of the automobile should attend one of these events.  If you preregister well in advance to be a bidder, the fees to attend the event are very reasonable for the chance to get behind the scenes and then you will receive each month a very nice magazine and updates on upcoming auctions.

not in my area.  I have since found a black hardtop 4spd car since I came across the coupe 4spd twin to my car.  This was just something I came across on line and thought I would share it.  The guy is playing dumb, but he was smart enough to post his tag, so he probably knows exactly what he has.  It would be a great car for a 4spd swap, definitely not another oe resto.

How much trouble is it to replace rear frame rails in a 69 Bee ? They are mainly just rusted through back where the rear hanger is .
