Hello All

I have an LC 2 door and there are two small bore (1-2mm) hoses in the boot, any clues as to what they are?

Cheers

Nanbar

Where do they go to/from? pics? 

My memory of the 70s'/80's ( fuzzy) is that things like Gabriel Air Shockers had about 2 -3mm clear hoses from the air inlet ( looks like a car tyre valve, maybe near the numberplate, or under the bumper)) that forked out to each side's air shock. ( it was the sort of hose that would kink easily and permanently if not treated nicely).

Spot on, I found the air valve and traced the line to it. Thanks to everyone for the responses, much appreciated.

That they be. I fitted a second hand pair to my HK for that pro Street look. 1979 would have been.

Are the pump up shocks still there at the other end of those lines?
