Was looking at Killer Glass, has anyone had any issues with it. I've heard in the past there were issues with the glass cracking and such. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. My other option I just found online and not sure but looks pretty cool, but again, no LED lighting up the hose either.

Jackie had one on the Mango and the dealership tried to tell her it was the reason she went through two radiators. Hopefully she can chime in with more details.

I have a killer glass hose, but only for a couple months now. No issues other than it took 5 weeks to get the air bubble out. I can't see how a pc of pyrex vx. rubber is going to blow a radiator. I haven't hooked up any lights yet, but I like the way it looks. I requested one without the logo etched on it and they didn't have a problem with that.

Funk, how much of the actual tubing is glass. I know the rubber ends are big on them

like shawn said, about 8". I'll snap a picture tomorrow. there is about 3" of rubber going to the water neck, then it's glass until after the downward bend. I died my coolant red, and even without the leds it looks pretty good. Since my car got smashed, and I lost the engine splash shield, my engine bay is DIRTY. tore up.

Speaking of how you dyed the you're coolant Bill, got me thinking....

Spicy, you should, If you havent already, flush out the system and convert it to green coolant, it would look cool and flow with you're color scheme you got on you're car

I've seen pictures of the green coolant with green leds, it looks like radioactive ooze from a cartoon.

I loved my killer glass. It looks cool and I really don't think it was the reason that my radiator got messed up.

I have one for sale if you are interested. I have both the top and bottom tubes.

and IL Chaos.....it IS 'bling'  Tom

yeah hard to believe a hose can blow a radiator. Jackie, is the tube clear? then I just have to light it up with a green LED?

The coolant is green currently. When we put the new drivetrain and radiator in he ran all new fluids. Getting a new coolant tank delivered within the next week or so too as the one i had on there started to paint chip. With all the new BT goodies and having to change out the water neck too, figured I would do the hoses as well.
