This thread is directed to Strider as an extension of the group buy going on for the GTi hose kits.
I'm going to pony up and send you all of my hoses from my 1995 3/5 car so he can have a full kit made up for the 1.0L engines.

People who are serious about buying these kits will be required to make a deposit to the fellow. The deposit will be half of the order total, which will be tentative at $75 for one '89-'00 kit and set at $50 for one '95-'00 kit. The total price is tentative at $150 for the '89-'94 Geo Metros and $100 for the '95-'00 Metros.

The '89-'94 kit is universal for all Geo Metros, this includes autos as well.
The '95-'00 kit is only for 3 cylinder, 5 speed models.
This picture covers the entire kit for all 1995 and newer 3 cylinder Metros PRICE IS $100 FOR ONE SET:

This picture covers the entire kit for all '89-'94 Metros PRICE IS $150 FOR ONE SET:

There are 10 colors to choose from as well.

Once I get all of the hoses to him you will send him the deposit for each kit you buy. YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO PAY HIM VIA PAYPAL. HIS PAYPAL ADDRESS IS: koffin_79@yahoo.com. The supplier will get the order completed in approximately 6 WEEKS. Once the order is completed and he has the hoses, he will request the other half of your total before he will mail them out to you.

If you order two kits, you only pay for shipping on one kit, so all subsequent kits will be $35 less.


So far the following people are serious about buying this:
1989-1994 GEO METRO UNIVERSAL KITS (AUTO AND MANUAL COMPATIBLE):
snowfish (Geo Forum) (2 sets: One Blue, One Yellow)
Bjetmech (Geo Forum) (2 sets: One Blue, One Dark Green)
Turbo Dan-O (Geo Forum) ( 2 sets: both in Black)
bennie442 (Geo Forum) (2 sets) Black
metro-mike (Geo Forum) (2sets: One Blue, One Black)
unplugged5150 (Geo Forum) Blue
kel (Geo Forum) Red
mlongkc Yellow
reddevillhs17 (Geo Forum) (2 sets: One Red, One Pink
sphenicie (Geo Forum) Red

1995-2000 METRO KIT (3 CYLINDER, 5 SPEED ONLY)

starscream5000 (2 sets: One Blue, One Red)
jfsjr (Geo Forum) (2 sets: One Blue, One Red)
Jimmyjamx22 (Geo Forum) Red
dwarren (Geo Forum) Orange
reddevillhs17 (Geo Forum) (2 sets: One Black, One Red)
Bjetmech (Geo Forum) Purple
sphenicie (Geo Forum) Purple
3220onr (Geo Forum) Blue
98chevymetro Black

We need at least 10 orders for this group buy to work. We have met that goal already, so I'll keep updating the additional people as they let me know what they want.

Hello guys,

Im currently send a few set for complete hose kit for a different car model. I got a cheap price since the order is like more than 100pcs. Just helping to get you hose kit with a 10 different colour. Of course i make a small profit from the sales. But 150usd SHIPPED for the kit is a very good price

If anyone want to send him the hose to complete the kit, would be much appreciate. This will be a good mould for any customer in the future. And yes, you will NEVER see the hose again (including me)

Thanks

I have a member over at the Geo Forums who's sending me all but one hose, and I can get it the missing one myself.
All told, there should be 14 hoses I'm sending you. 3 hoses will be radiator hoses, the rest are small hoses. This will be a slightly smaller kit than what comes with a GTi. So will the price of this be set at $150 each?
This is for your own records for when you sell more to people outside of this group buy:
This kit should cover all Geo metros from 1989-2000 that come with a 3 cylinder G10 engine and a 5speed transmission. We do not have a lower radiator hose for an automatic, so this kit isn't going to be completely compatible with them.

Strider, I'm in for one blue set and possibly a red set. Pretty sure StarScream is in for 2 sets as well. Hope this all works out. Having a set available, for a G10, would be great. Please keep us informed on how to proceed. Thanks.

starscream5000 - thanks for the info. I will try to make it max 150usd shipped with additional small hose.

jfsjr PM'ed me and ask me is it possible to get the clamps as well.. and yes, i can get it with extra cost.. max for all clamps can't be more than 45usd (different size)

Im just waiting to get the hose. Once get it, i will send to my supplier and he will proceed with the order. Hopefully at that time we already have minimum 10 order..

Strider. A member gave a nice suggestion. Let me know if you can accomodate us.
What I'm trying to send you will pretty much cover 3 different cars. What if I label for you the hoses and what cars they go to? That way instead of buying hoses for other cars, we can essentially buy just the hoses we need for our specific car, thus keeping us from having extras, and keeping the costs down.
Here's what it would look like:
89-94 Geo Metro Manual - 11 hoses
89-94 Geo Metro Automatic - 11 hoses
95-00 Geo Metro 3/5 - 10 hoses

Please let us know if you can do this and what the cost would be!

Should be no problem, but each hose kit need to have 10 order. Then, i can negotiate the price with him. Like i said, cost will be 150usd max for the kit :wink:

There's actually one other version that would need to be added and that's below
93-94 metro with upgraded emissions.
I'll let everyone know.
How do we need to send the deposit to you?

once i get the sample and 10 buyer, i will take 75usd (half of total) each. So total deposit for 10 is 750usd. The supplier will get it done in 6 week (estimate) then once everything is here, i will need a balance before ship the hose to all of you

Thanks

We already have 11 orders committed, so as soon as I get the other hoses in the mail from one of the members, I'll be mailing them out to you!

I got some more hoses in the mail from a member last night. Just waiting on the last set from another member to come in and then I'll take pictures of all of them together for you so you can see them all.

All of the hoses are at my house now. I'll take pics later tonight to show you what a full kit for this car looks like!
We decided rather quickly that we're not going to do individual kits as we'll never get enough interest for all of the options. It would take 50+ people to have all of the hoses replicated in every single little option available for the cars. That's just not going to happen with a tightwad little group that we have. :lol:

strider, will the hoses be the same thickness as the OEM hoses, or will they be thicker?
I'm curious to know if they will work with the OEM hose clamps, or if we would need new hose clamps, as well.

Change of plans. We will HAVE to do 2 different kits. One for the '89-'94 Metros and one for the '95-'00 Metros. There are just too many differences between the generations. I'm finding out that some of the hoses that I thought were the same actually aren't. So stay tuned as we need to get get you at least 10 orders from each set, correct?

i can't 100% sure about it. the hose might be a bit thicker than OEM. I don't think it will be any issue with the clamps.I don't use the clamp for most of the hose except radiator hose because they are tight enough

Here is the complete kit for '95-'00 3 cylinder Metros. Since this kit is quite a bit smaller than what we were getting up to, can you do this kit for $100 shipped?
