    I am trying to find the flared nuts for the back of the right gauntlet (where the hoses attach) and the front of the flamethrower. I know people have been talking about the flare nuts, but all I can find are the brass ones and the flare is straight-edged, not curved like the original.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction or have any photos of the proper piece to use?

    Thanks,

    You can also try your local contractor's supply store. The same type of hardware is used for connecting pneumatic hoses, if I understand you correctly. Good luck.

    Hey there,
    Not sure if this is a ghost post at this point, but I did want to share my hose progress. I dyed them in a bucket with RIT navy blue. They are very dark, almost black, but I think it turned out well.

    Looks great! These threads were supposed to be stickied, however when they changed forums over/upgraded, they kinda floated away. They are all very helpful, the "Official" threads. Should we sticky them again? Or was there some executive decision I missed where we were going to let them float off? Just an idea!

    If we stick the "Official Threads" then the whole first page of a section could be just "Official Threads" If you use the search button and have it search titles for the works "Official Thread" you will find them.
